“Curating for Change: The Work That Music Festivals Do in the World” is a two-part online conference on music festivals as resonant – even if at times contested – sites of activism, equity, environmental stewardship, and community-building. It brings together scholars, practitioners, artists, organizers, and patrons in the realm of music-making to reflect on the work that independent, artist-run, or boutique music festivals do in promoting vital forms of activist arts-based practices and pedagogies.

The event is co-organized by the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation at the University of Guelph and the Department of History at Queen’s University.
