International Council for Traditional Music

A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO

43rd ICTM World Conference

The 43rd ICTM World Conference will be held at the Kazakh National University of Arts in Astana, Kazakhstan, from 16th - 22nd July, 2015. It would be wonderful to have our Study Group on Ethnochoreology well represented at it. There are some interesting themes for us which we could consider for either individual papers, panels or roundtables. Proposals for films and workshops are also welcomed. Themes include: The Creators of Music and Dance; Music, Dance, the Body, and Society; and Visual Representation of Music Cultures, among others. I would encourage you all to think about submitting a proposal. The deadline for receipt of proposals is 30th September, 2014. 

The World Conferences are important places for us to share our research and our work on dance with the wider ICTM community. They also give us opportunities to meet each other again for further discussion and exchange of ideas. Our Study Group will have a meeting at the 43rd World Conference and it would be great to see you there.

With best wishes to you all.
