Artistic development

Recent years, new courses have emerged at the Nordic music education institutions related to artistic research and reflection. This development is happening simultanously with the increasement of staff with background in the growing field of artistic research, and that one sees the need in performance education to strengthen awareness and reflection on musician's role, artistic identity and contextual understanding, in addition to knowledge on connections between performance and philosophical references. 

This project is a think tank where teachers that have initiated and runs such courses in the Nordic countries, meet to exchange experiences and teaching resources from the reflection courses, and to discuss further potential of development in teaching and learning within this field.
