Symposium: Translating Improvisation in Belfast, Belfast UK

May 29, 2015 - May 30, 2015

Translating Improvisation is pleased to present a UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)-sponsored international symposium entitled “JUST IMPROVISATION: Enriching Child Protection Law through Musical Techniques, Discourses, and Pedagogies” will be held at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University Belfast on Fri 29 – Sat 30 May 2015, with keynote addresses by IICSI team members Pauline Oliveros (USA) and Ellen Waterman (Canada), and concerts by Maria Chavez (USA) and Okkyung Lee (Korea).

Bringing together academic and non-academic participants, both locally and internationally, this symposium explores the improvised creativity that is at the heart of legal decision-making, specifically as it applies to the area of child protection law. Through panel discussions, keynote addresses, improvisation workshops and performances, symposium participants will interrogate how to best equip those working in child protection (lawyers, judges, social workers, policy makers, community activists and third sector employees) to be confident in the improvisatory role which they are being called to undertake, where improvisation is understood as the technical ability and responsiveness to negotiate a smooth path between the general system of legal rules and an individual case. The symposium is free and open to the public. Please RSVP in advance to Matilde Meireles ([email protected]).
