PGVIM International Symposium 2024

PGVIS 2024_Poster A2_2.jpg

Music has long been recognized as a powerful force that reflects and shapes human experiences, particularly during times of conflict and in the pursuit of harmony. This symposium aims to explore the complex relationship between music, conflict, and harmony, focusing on the role of higher education in fostering a deeper understanding of this dynamic.

The symposium will bring together scholars, educators, and practitioners from various disciplines to discuss the historical and cultural contexts in which music has been used as a tool for expressing dissent, promoting ideologies, and asserting cultural identities.

The concept of "dreamland" serves as the central theme of this symposium. It represents the transformative power of music in creating a world where conflicts are resolved through the universal language of sound. By exploring the role of music in conflict, the symposium will highlight the ways in which music education and collaborative musical projects can promote empathy, reconciliation, and social harmony, thereby paving the way for a more harmonious future.

Through meaningful dialogue, sharing of best practices, and inspiring new research and creative projects, this symposium will delve into music's potential to address social and cultural challenges. Ultimately, it will contribute to a deeper understanding of how music education and scholarship can play a vital role in promoting conflict resolution and social harmony in our world.
