While preparations for the concluding conference to be held in Arnhem on 25 and 26 May 2018 are now in full swing, Next Move has already been in full motion for three years. The project is a collaboration of ArtEZ University of the Arts (Netherlands), RAMA The Royal Academy of Music (Denmark) and DOCH School of Dance Circus, the University College of Opera, and Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts (Sweden). When these institutes discovered that there are no joint modules within European higher art education, they decided to develop them together with their students and lecturers. An intensive process consisting of research and exchange sessions provides a new view on the future of dance and music education. This view forms the thread of the concluding conference, for which those interested can now sign up at nextmove-eu.com.
The new role of the dance and music teacher
Today the dance and music teacher's sphere of activity reaches far beyond the school walls. Today's teacher is at the centre of society. This new position involves challenges in terms of the skills that the teacher needs to possess. To provide for the need for a more inclusive society, Next Move once again looked into the contribution that the dance and music teacher can make, based on which an international future-proof education module has been developed. This module provides the teacher of the future with entrepreneurial skills and new forms of teaching.
A city walk or bicycle ride, activities organised by students and teachers; the concluding conference of Next Move will not be a standard event. On 25 and 26 May, ArtEZ, based in the centre of Arnhem, will give the floor to three international speakers: Jessica Nicoll & Barry Oreck, Tone Pernille Østern and Elen Øyen. Anyone interested in the art lectureship of the future and innovation in higher art education is very welcome to attend.

Next Move is made possible by the EU's Erasmus+ programme.
