The Work that Music Festivals Do in the World

Curating for change conference

Curating for Change: The Work that Music Festivals Do in the World is a two-part online conference on music festivals as resonant – even if at times contested – sites of activism, equity, environmental stewardship, and community-building. It brings together scholars, practitioners, artists, organizers, and patrons in the realm of music-making to reflect on the work that independent, artist-run, or boutique music festivals do in promoting vital forms of activist arts-based practices and pedagogies.

The event is co-organized by the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation at the University of Guelph and the Department of History at Queen’s University, with the support of sponsors and partners from across Canada.

How much does Curating for Change: The Work that Music Festivals Do in the World cost? Do I need a ticket?

The conference is completely free. To stream the event on Zoom and participate in the Q&As, simply register via our Eventbrite page: whatmusicfestivalsdo.eventbrite.com.
