The first course, Curatorial Practices in Music: Defining your Vision, takes place from October to Februari and allows you to explore possibilities with the help of inspirational speakers and literature.
Through reflection and exchange with others, you will explore your own practice. The focus on content from the dual perspective of cultural theory and music practice offers plenty of space to explore new ideas and put them into practice. Over fourteen sessions, you will enrich your own ideas through inspirational presentations and discussions with guest speakers, fellow students and ArtEZ lecturers. As part of that, you will help put together and present a small library made up of literature from the fields of music, sociology, psychology and cultural theory. In short: everything that may be relevant to your practice as a music curator. In doing so, you will transform your insights and ideas about music practice. The results will be reflected in a final position paper containing a programme proposal.
Most sessions have a fixed structure:
The first part (16.00-18.00 hours) is reserved for inspirational guest lecturers, who will present their own practices and talk to the students.
The second part (19.00-21.00 hours) will be devoted to discussions about relevant literature. a reader is being developed).
The second course, which starts in March 2020, will focus on Leadership and Management for music curators.
