In this 5th SIMM-podcast episode we hear Lukas Pairon discuss with Graça Mota from Portugal (00:53-17:50), Khamis Abu Shaaban from Gaza (17:50-26:43), Cathy Milliken from Australia (26:45-40:02), and Bart Maris from Belgium (40:05-54:14), about what motivates musicians to want to engage themselves in social and community music projects. This subject is also discussed during the session of the Brussels SIMM-posium on Tuesday 23rd February 2021.
The 5th yearly SIMM-posium is presenting research in the field of music in social and community work by scholars from all over the world. It was planned to take place in December 2020 at the Brussels based centre for the arts BOZAR, but because of the covid-pandemic it was reformatted as a series of 9 weekly online sessions on Tuesdays, from January 12th on until March 9th 2021.
