Curating Ethnomusicology/Exhibiting Music events begin Monday, June 15!

I’m proud to be a part of the Exhibiting Sound team, and looking forward to  opening of a week of exciting events at Cape Breton University. This Monday at 9 a.m we begin the Curating Ethnomusicology pre-conference workshop!

The first public Exhibiting Sound event is Curating Ethnomusicology, a pre-conference workshop in digital humanities being held at CBU from June 15-16. This event brings together local, national and international heritage and media professionals and scholars, all of whom are involved in the creation of innovative multimedia that attends to music from around the world. The workshop includes a special focus on collaborative research with Indigenous communities. Events and exhibitions, all on the CBU campus and open to public, will include scholarly and industry presentations, practical/applied workshops, exhibitions, performance/lectures, film screenings and other interactive learning opportunities. Curating Ethnomusicology is a prelude to Exhibiting Music, the Canadian Society for Traditional Music conference, being hosted by Cape Breton University from June 17-19 ( Follow or join the conversation via Twitter using the hashtag #CuratingEthno for the pre-conference, and for the conference: #CSTM2015. (excerpted from a recent Cape Breton University press release)
