Subject Fields: 
Music and Music History

After three successful editions (offline and online), we continue our summer course focusing on music as intangible heritage from theoretical, professional and practical aspects. In 2022 we will concentrate on cultural leadership, curatorial practices, public outreach, and the connection between heritage and audience building – major points of discussion within the cultural sector and the creative industries in recent times. 

The course will introduce the framework (theoretical, practical and research-related concepts and resources) which are required to successfully complete participatory projects as leaders in musical cultural heritage. The course will also provide an insight into the ethnographic, geographic, political, economic, and production aspects of music curation. We aim to present a contemporary and viable approach to responsible musical heritage management. As an inherent topic, we will examine the role and forms of music in social engagement and public outreach, and we will study the connection between heritage and audience building. The course will also tackle storytelling and conceptualization, which play an increasing role in the presentation of cultural heritage in the field and context of both tangible and intangible heritage. 

Application deadline: February 28, 2022
