Miegunyah Public Lecture: Dr Susan O'Neill
27 April 2012
Topic: Understanding and engaging artists and musicians in the 21st century
To gain a better understanding of artists and musicians in the 21st century we must first expand the lens through which we view their artistic and musical worlds. Drawing on recent studies by Research for Youth, Music and
Education (RYME) that involved young people from across Canada, Dr. Susan O’Neill explores the characteristics of artistic and musical engagement, what young people value most about their involvement in the arts and music,
and their artistic representations of music in their everyday lives.
Dr Susan O’Neill is an Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, Director of Research for Youth, Music and Education (RYME) , Simon Fraser University, Canada. She is a Miegunyah Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the University of Melbourne, generously supported by the Miegunyah Fund.
When: Friday 27 April, 6pm - 7pm
Where: Melba Hall, Melba Conservatorium of Music, Gate 12, University of Melbourne, Royal Parade, Parkville
