Dynamic Processes in Group Music Activities

Thursday 30 May - Saturday 1 June 2019
University of Music and Performing Arts, Munich, Germany

Conference Directors: Andrea Sangiorgio, Wolfgang Mastnak

In the field of education there is a multifaceted rationale explaining the urgency of investigating and implementing "creativity in relationship". Well beyond transmitting established knowledge and skills, educational institutions have to prepare future generations to work creatively in teams. Indeed, innovation relies on the capacity of people and organisations to collaboratively engage in creative processes of knowledge building. In this sense, group creativity is becoming a core topic both in research and in pedagogical practice.

The aim of the conference is to gather together researchers, teachers and students to share ideas on collaborative creativity in music learning and on various modes of dynamic processes that take place when two or more people invent something new in music together. The theme is transversal to diverse areas and contexts: early childhood, primary and secondary education, higher education, but also special education, instrumental tuition, out-of-school contexts, etc.
Be it with young children, adolescents, students, adult learners or artists, collaborative creativity can be viewed from different perspectives:

The importance of creative learning and teaching for creativity as a fundamental theme in education and music education cannot be overestimated. We are looking forward to enjoying three days of inspiring presentations, debates, workshops and concerts with you and reflecting on how we collectively create our art and our future!
