International Society for Music Education World Conference 2022
July 17 - July 22
The 35th World Conference for the International Society for Music Education (ISME) will be staged virtually from 17-22 July 2022.
Call for submissions
The International Society for Music Education (ISME) invites submissions for the 35th World Conference. The 2022 ISME World Conference aims to foster global understanding and co-operation among the world’s music educators. By strengthening ties and sharing ideas about diverse aspects and issues within music education, the 2022 ISME World Conference helps to promote music education worldwide for people of all ages.
The theme for the 2022 ISME World Conference is A Visible Voice. We recognise the legitimacy of each community’s music practice as a valid strategy for their socialisation and development. It is crucial that each music tradition finds space within the activities espoused by ISME. For teacher and researcher alike, there is need for respect and recognition of one’s opinion, position and perception, no matter their station, because every experience is valid and has something to contribute to ISME’s global agenda of enhancing human lives through quality music education. The 35th World Conference provides a platform where, globally and at personal levels, what we do makes a difference as we provide the diversity that our membership represents.
The conference will help us to ‘see’ the different voices that ‘music’ presents by empowering music educators towards the creation of a more just, more socially embracing and more economically supportive society.
Proposals for papers, posters, symposia, and workshops are invited from participants worldwide. ISME encourages submissions that align with the conference theme A Visible Voice from researchers and practitioners at all career stages including graduate students and early career professionals.
