Community music as ambiguous musical practice
12 November 2020
The fourth event of five in the ICCM Presents autumn series, presented by Dr Kim Boeskov

Community music is often understood as an intervention aiming for social transformation. However, even if such interventions allow participants to transcend boundaries within their social worlds, they may also depend on – and therefore reproduce – social structures of inequality and constraint. How might we engage with such ambiguous and paradoxical social functions of community music?

Kim Boeskov is a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer in music education at Aarhus University and Rhythmic Music Conservatory, Copenhagen, Denmark. As a music teacher and community musician, Kim has worked in a range of different contexts including prisons, refugee camps and with marginalized youths.
