In an area as important as music and culture, we must advocate equal opportunity and diversity in education. What adjustments can institutions make to accommodate a plurality of backgrounds, cultures, access capabilities, artistic paradigms and aspirations?

This section investigates how diversity, identity and inclusiveness are defined and applied in today’s Higher Music Education. Issues such as gender, ethnicity, disabilities, and socio-economic backgrounds as well as power relations and different musical genres are explored. We seek examples of learning, teaching, recruitment and (equal) access among all member Higher Music Education Institutions in order to identify good practices which in turn can promote increased access to Higher Music Education for all.

The content of this section will be mainly provided by a working group, consisting of experts selected from the European Higher Music Education community. You can find more information about them here, on the website of the network representing this community, AEC.
