ShareMusic & Performing Arts is arranging the symposium Inclusive Creativity Sweden: The impact of creative technologies in performing arts 28-29 April 2016 at the Göteborg Opera in Gothenburg, Sweden. For April 29 we are looking for interesting proposals for our panel discussion. We would like to invite you.
Underpinning the concept of inclusive creativity is the aim of leveling the playing field in performance and composition for disabled musicians by developing new technologies and methodologies for their use. Three panels will interrogate how contemporary creative practice and scholarship is addressing this aim.
To participate in one of these panels please provide a 300-word outline of how your practice and/or scholarship challenges state of the art in the inclusive creative context with particular regard to one of the following:
Composition and Performance
Development of new hardware and software
Training and validation
All proceedings from the symposium will be published online.
Submission: April 6, 2016.
Review notification: April 11, 2016
Submit paper to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Language: English only
The core theme of the symposium is the impact of creative technologies on artistic possibilities and inclusive ensembles and how to enhance independence for musicians with disabilities. It is a unique gathering of information and knowledge. We want to create a network for this kind of research field, as well as examine the conditions to develop a new forum including the Swedish perspective. The symposium kicks off with an official event on 28 April. Read more here.
Inclusive Creativity is a concept devised by Professor Frank Lyons at Ulster University in collaboration with key partners such as ShareMusic & Performing Arts and Drake Music, which aims to level the playing field in performance and composition for disabled musicians by developing new technologies and methodologies for their use.
Inclusive Creativity Sweden is arranged and hosted by ShareMusic & Performing Arts in cooperation with RNM (Resource New Music), Kultur i Väst and University of Ulster, Northern Ireland. With support of the Swedish Arts Council, the Göteborg Opera, British Council and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
