Reflecting Difference

YEAR: 2020

An enquiry into the fundamentals of inclusive music pedagogy across four countries in four continents

Sound Society & Dr Phil Mullen

This project aims to enable selected practitioners, from four different regions of the world, to share their expert knowledge and reflections on what it means to work with music across formal and non-formal contexts with some of the world’s most vulnerable children and young people. Knowledge gathered will form the basis for further development of inclusive music education within each of these countries and regions, and later, act as a springboard to expand the knowledge and expertise to other countries and jurisdictions over time.
