University of Toronto Multidisciplinary Creative Conference
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Friday September 21st(evening) – Sunday September 23rd 2018.
Faculty of Music, University of Toronto.
The University of Toronto Music Graduate Students’ Association is pleased to announce the second annual Multidisciplinary Creative Conference. This year’s theme is Empowerment Through Art and the conference committee invites submissions by graduate students in various disciplines in the format of research papers, collaborative workshops, performances, lecture-recitals, demonstrations and the like. Submissions that exemplify cross-disciplinary collaboration (i.e. multimedia performance, music and choreography, performance art, etc.) are strongly encouraged. Each panelist will be allotted 60 minutes of presentation time, which may be used in a combination of presentation and interactive workshop formats, including a question period.
We are proud to have the privilege of two keynote presentations this year!
- Saturday’s keynote address will be a combined presentation by ethnomusicologist Dr. Jeff Packman and dance scholar Dr. Danielle Robinson. Their presentation will examine the intersection of music, dance, and politics of Brazil’s samba de roda.
- Sunday’s keynote speaker will be Professor Aiyun Huang. As a leading expert in percussion theater, her lecture recital will address creative intercultural exchanges between contemporary music and film, with a focus on the femme fatale re-contextualized.
