Applications are open for “Curatorial Practices in Music” at ArtEZ

Curatorial Practices in Music course
@ Erik Franssen

Sounds Now is one of the few structures to offer a course on curating contemporary music. The ArtEZ University of the Arts is another. This year, ArtEZ presents the fourth edition of a course on curatorial practices in music, which will be fully online.  There are only 14 places for musicians, music programmers and promotors from all genres who would like to develop their skills as music curators. Participants in the first editions of the course covered the whole range: from heavy metal to jazz, new music, electronic, indie, and hardcore classical curators.

What to expect

  • Inspirational guest speakers present best practices and, who knows, perhaps also epic failures to learn from
  • Weekly lectures provide examples of relevant information and current ideas in music curatorial practices
  • Exchange views with experts and colleagues on current issues in the areas of curating, diversity, audience development, performance innovation and performance formats
  • Transform your own musical practice based on a broad musical and social context
  • Strengthen your professional network and put your ideas into practice

  • Course at the Master’s level
