Music for change

Sustainability in research and education

Next event in Gronningen, The Netherlands. Music4Change International Research School 2024

About the Project

Music4Change prioritizes sustainability in music research and education through innovations in teaching and learning.  Through a transnational European alliance of universities and NGOs, the project will energize the field of doctoral studies by increasing interdisciplinarity, digital competency, and cooperation between universities and the music sector.

The project will implement a new Curriculum for Change for PhD education offering open access digital resources and blended learning focusing on sustainability in and through music research.

Cross sector knowledge exchange will be fostered through innovations in Living Lab Workshop methodology.  The Bridge Mentorship Scheme will be piloted to provide tailored support for diverse learner profiles and post study career paths.

Through increasing knowledge of the role of arts in achieving sustainable development goals music4change aims to foster socially responsible research that brings the power and possibilities of the arts to key public issues.
