The symposium offers a reflection on the relationship between singing and inclusion in different social and geographical contexts. It hosts world-renowned experts in the field of music education and, in particular, singing education.
The symposium programme includes both presentations and workshops dedicated to music and singing education. The presentations will address topics such as reciprocity in education, critical pedagogy, the relationship between singing and disability, singing as a means of inclusion for people with a migrant background, community music, singing in school curricula, and methodology in the study of singing. The main objective of the workshops is to promote new creative methods in music teaching in the classroom as well as in other contexts, including non-formal ones.
The event is aimed at training school teachers, music teachers, social workers, students, choir directors and choristers to address relevant issues raised by the complexity of the contemporary world and to recognise and understand differences in order to guarantee universal access to education. The role of inclusion is a topic of interest for both pedagogues and those working in the field of music education, i.e. in contexts where access and participation must be guaranteed for all regardless of differences between individuals.
During the lunch break, the university choir unibzVoices will perform in a short concert.
