JOINT (AD)VENTURE MUSIC
Networking as a challenge for music educators
Music in schools makes music available to and accessible for every child. Pupils participate self-determinedly in cultural life. Supporting young people in this respect is a basic challenge for music educators: a challenge which requires them keep abreast of changes in their subject by considering the various developing fields of musical practice and reflecting on studies in different scientific disciplines. Helping young people to develop a deeper understanding of music and fostering their active participation in musical life in a rapidly changing society has to be a joint venture between different partners. Such joint ventures may turn into joint (ad)ventures that explore multiple facets of musical culture.
Embedded in a cultural network, music education in schools depends on dialogues with:
- public and private cultural institutions
- extracurricular music education
- referential research fields
This congress encourages music educators and communicators involved in their own specific ventures to become engaged in the adventure of new collaborations.
