The Joint Symposium of the ICTM Study Group on Indigenous Music and Dance / National Recording Project for Indigenous Music and Dance in Australia [NRPIPA]

‘This joint symposium is concerned with the practice, research and documentation of music, dance and ceremony across the fullest array of Indigenous contexts worldwide. This includes national contexts in which Indigenous peoples still struggle to have their sovereignty and rights recognised, as well as those from which former colonial powers have withdrawn, yet their institutional structures remain entrenched. The symposium is a forum for cooperation among music and dance practitioners and scholars to share and discuss music, dance and ceremony, and their connections to Indigenous modes of knowledge production and strategies for cultural survival’.

Venue : University of Melbourne, Parkville, Melbourne, Victoria.

Beginning of November 2022
