Organised by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, The University of Melbourne, in collaboration with the Faculty of the Victorian College of the Arts & Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, and Multicultural Arts Victoria, this collaboratory will bring together researchers, practitioners (musicians including performers, community musicians, music educators, music therapists; community development workers; social service workers; arts organisation delegates), and arts and community policymakers to share ideas about the ways that music is used to develop peace, empathy and conciliation. We invite local, national and international researchers and practitioners to attend, and hope that the symposium will produce thought-provoking discussion and fruitful partnerships between industry, community and education sectors.
