The Engaged Composer Symposium

Constellations of Noise | The Engaged Composer Symposium

Connecting and Co-creating with Diverse Communities

Friday 10th & Saturday 11th March, Cultra Manor (Holywood)

Join us for a symposium for composers, artists, musicians, students and any practitioner involved in reaching community groups. Part of the Our Place in Space music programme, in partnership with Dumbworld and Ulster University, we will explore how collaborative music-making between artists and the community can impact society.

Over the two days, eight of the UK and Ireland’s most experienced and inspirational composers and practitioners will share their insights and experience in collaborating and co-creating work with a broad range of demographics and communities on our music programme Constellations of Noise.

Symposium speakers include Prof. Frank Lyons (Ulster University), Gareth Williams (Scottish Opera/Edinburgh College of Art), Dee Isaacs (University of Edinburgh), Sid Peacock (Composer, Producer, Educator), with a talk by Live Music Now and of course, Brian Irvine.

Both days have morning and afternoon sessions. We welcome you to join us for some or all of these two focused and inspiring days.
