MEC Seminar: Race and Music Education
A conversation about race and music education: If we're all "on a journey", why is it taking so long to reach a destination?

About the event
Why are so many people still talking about the same issues around race and music education that they were 10 years ago? In this Seminar we will explore and celebrate good working practice and debunk the myth that ‘we are all on a journey’ when talking about race. And if we want to think of it as a journey why is it taking so long for us to reach a destination?
How can you ensure accountability for improving issues around race and make a real difference in music education? How can we do this together and move the story on?
This seminar is a brave space where all are invited to attend particularly those of you working in music education who identify as being part of the Global Majority.
