Welcome to The University of British Columbia, site of the MayDay Group Colloquium 25 that will be held June 26-29, 2013 in Vancouver, Canada.
This year’s conference will address themes related to the Third Proposed Action Ideal of the MayDay Group.
As agents of social change who are locally and globally bound, we create, sustain, and contribute to reshaping musical cultures at varied levels. Musical cultures are human-driven, living processes, not merely sets of works or established practices. Musical activity develops out of an emergent synergy of change and tradition within human contexts and communities of practice. Thus, we need to continually examine privilege and power surrounding these contexts and practices, including our own histories and identities, to encourage the capacity for change in our musical and educational practices.
