A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO
ICTM Colloquia are small scholarly meetings typically involving 20 to 30 invited ICTM members who have conducted research on the Colloquium's theme. Initially launched by Dieter Christensen (Secretary General of the Council from 1981 to 2001), Colloquia aim at furthering the exchange of ideas and dialogue among specialists from different parts of the world, as well as gaining and disseminating new insights on themes that are relevant to music and dance research.
These scholarly meetings are designed to provide an environment conducive to the appreciation of different systems of thought and ideas. Sometimes they are associated with festivals and conferences, allowing dialogue with other participants and with the public. Papers are often circulated in advance to provide ample time for discussion.
Corrections or additions to the information listed below are welcome, and should be sent to the Secretariat.
To propose a new ICTM Colloquium, please consult the relevant Memorandum on ICTM Colloquia.
