Wednesday 26th August
Since 2008 Gillian Howell (AU) has worked to understand how music interacts with and contributes to social and cultural change in settings of major societal upheaval, transition or changes of crisis. Connecting lines between music and hope is the headline for her keynote message which draws on examples from Afghanistan and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Gillian Howell shows how hope is configured in different ways through music. She refers to music education at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul as an example on how music contributes in complex contexts.
