The 7th SIMM-posium (social impact of music making) will take place at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama and through presentations and workshops will explore training for socially engaged musicians and interprofessional collaboration

Following the 2nd SIMM-posium in 2017, the 7th SIMM-posium will in 2022 again be organized at and by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, this time in a close collaboration with the Copenhagen based Rhythmic Music Conservatory and its Centre for Research in Artistic Citizenship (CReARC/RMC) and of course also with the research platform SIMM.

This SIMM-posium will aim to be in-person (maximum registration 100), but it will also allow online attendance.

There is provision in the programme for only up to 40 brief (10 minute) presentations of research or research-related work in progress (or critical reflections on research), which are curated into thematic panels of four to five presentations followed by a plenary discussion. Presentations of practice with no relation to research are excluded.

Presentations on research concerning any aspect of making music’s social impact have been welcomed, but a specific interest during this conference will concern the following topics:

  • Training for socially engaged musicians
  • Interprofessional collaboration
  • SIMM-practice during the pandemic
  • The practice of facilitation within SIMM-projects
