Constellations of Noise | The Engaged Composer Symposium – 10 to 11 Mar

Connecting and Co-creating with Diverse Communities

Join us for a symposium for composers, artists, musicians, students and any practitioner involved in reaching community groups. Part of the Our Place in Space music programme, in partnership with Dumbworld and Ulster University, we will explore how collaborative music-making between artists and the community can impact society.

Over the two days, eight of the UK and Ireland’s most experienced and inspirational composers and practitioners will share their insights and experience in collaborating and co-creating work with a broad range of demographics and communities on our music programme Constellations of Noise.

Symposium speakers include Prof. Frank Lyons (Ulster University), Gareth Williams (Scottish Opera/Edinburgh College of Art), Dee Isaacs (University of Edinburgh), Sid Peacock (Composer, Producer, Educator), with a talk by Live Music Now and of course, Brian Irvine.

Venue: Cultra Manor, Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, 153 Bangor Rd, Holywood BT18 0EY
Date: 10th March – 11th March 2023
Time: 10am – 5pm (both days)
