Reflective Conservatoire Conference

It's now less than two weeks to the 3rd Reflective Conservatoire conference: Performing at the Heart of Knowledge. We have over 200 delegates coming from all over the world - there should be some interesting debates and conversations. These are the questions in my mind: can we use the conference to get stronger dialogue going between senior managers and teachers in Conservatoires as well as between researchers and practitioners; can we use this opportunity to build confidence and understanding about practice-based research; and what ideas about collaboration will emerge, what partnerships will evolve?

In a nutshell

So why should you be interested in Learning in and through the Performing Arts?

The collaborative processes of the performing arts open a pandora's box of possibilities for artistic, personal and organizational development. They are subtle and multi-layered, embodied practices that can yield much more than what individuals bring to them, creatively and in terms of human exchange. My work is about continuing to develop these processes for the twenty-first century, so that artists can adapt to their changing contexts and enable their work to take root as creative entrepreneurs, and so that the processes of the arts can be shared and enhanced through exchange with other disciplines and across cultural contexts.
