‘The social and cultural commitment of the musician’

The 6th SIMM-posium was organized at and by the Philharmonie de Paris, in a close collaboration with the SIMM-platform and Fondation Royaumont.

In a world shaken by crises of multiple forms, a new type of musical practice has emerged, which engages the professional musician in actions aimed to have social impacts. The international 6th SIMM-posium is bringing together researchers from different horizons, and will focus on analysing this change in the profession of musicians. Which states of mind, practices, responsibilities and skills are being mobilised to be both an art gateway and an activist for the human cause?

The scientific committee for this conference was composed of: Marta Amico, An de Bisschop, Lukas Pairon, Cécile Prévost-Thomas, Marie-Hélène Serra, Filip Verneert and Thomas Vernet (Fondation Royaumont).

The programme of this SIMM-posium which took place at the Philharmonie de Paris as well as online on 2 & 3 November 2021 – is available here on the website of the Philharmonie.
