Making Music Work: Culture & Practice

Cultural practices creatively drive core human capacities, including imagination, strategy, playfulness, and collaboration, and as such, embody the modes of action and thinking that are necessary to imagine the world as it otherwise could be.

Making Music Work: Culture & Practice explores the growing area of research concerned with the connection between music and sustainable development. By carefully considering how innovative music initiatives are helping advance specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda, Making Music Work: Culture & Practice hones in an understanding of how cultural practice can be harnessed to promote local and international development efforts.

In the Making Music Work: Culture and Practice course, Cohort Members will have the opportunity to reflect on their own experience throughout Semester One, learn from the experiences of others, and challenge preconceived ideas regarding the potential of music to impact communities across the world.
