Roundtable on Diversity and Decolonization of Music in Canada

Key Contact:Ellen Waterman

The School for Studies in Art and Culture presents a Roundtable on Diversity and Decolonization of Music in Canada

It will take place at the Dominion Chalmers Centre in Woodside Hall on Friday, April 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Participants include Dylan Robinson, a Stó:lō scholar who holds the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Arts at Queen’s University; Parmela Attariwala, an ethnomusicologist, and violinist who recently authored a policy document on diversity for Orchestras Canada; and Ellen Waterman, inaugural Helmut Kallmann Chair for Music in Canada at Carleton University.

Over the past five years, there has been an increasing national conversation about diversity and decolonization in the arts, with numerous conferences and the creation of policy documents. What now?  How do we turn discussion into action? What systemic changes do artists and arts organizations need to make in order to create more just conditions for music in Canada?

Join us for a stimulating discussion.  Better yet, come early and hear Carleton University Music Students perform onstage at Dominion Chalmers between 3 and 5 pm!

Dominion Chalmers Centre is at 355 Cooper St.  Admission is free and the venue is accessible.
