Event Description

Following feedback from our landmark session at our Social Justice conference last year, Beyond Diversity, we are pleased to offer a one-day programme aimed at helping organisations and practitioners move beyond limiting models of diversity in relation to race and class.

This exciting session will take a multidisciplinary approach using music, interactive activities and frameworks to provide an open environment where we can collectively move towards a proactive, critically engaged sector.

The day will explore:

  • structural racism, power and privilege within the arts
  • how whiteness shapes music education, the wider cultural sector and the cultures within the cultural sector
  • strategies to create inclusive, socially just ways of building programmes and curriculums

Who the day is for:

  • staff at arts organisations and music education hubs
  • arts practitioners
  • educators
  • policy-makers

If you are a person of colour, this training day might help you find the language you need to address issues around race within your organisation, with practitioners on hand to offer you support throughout the day. We know that the emotional and intellectual labour of combatting racism falls on people of colour with little support and we will strive not to replicate that dynamic in this space.

The Chetham’s International Summer School and Festival for Pianists is a source of inspiration, fun, insight and focus for everyone who enjoys the piano and piano-playing.

Now in its nineeenth year, it continues to grow and develop as a ‘piano republic of equals’. There is no elitism on the course, though everyone is extremely serious about piano playing.

There is no other Summer school that manages to cater for the universal: Adult amateurs, promising children, and observers are as welcome on the course as concert pianists, international young artists preparing for top competitions, and professional music teachers.
