Public Engagement Committee Annual Report – October 2016


Sub­mit­ted by Louise Camp­bell, Octo­ber 2016

The Pub­lic Engage­ment Com­mit­tee was com­prised of Tawnie Olson, Jen­nifer War­ing and chaired by Louise Camp­bell. The main activ­i­ties in the 2015–16 year were pub­li­ciz­ing suc­cess sto­ries in the bul­letin of cur­rent projects in pub­lic engage­ment in new music.

Pub­lic engage­ment was also a big top­ic in the FORUM 2016 in both pre­sen­ta­tions and infor­mal dis­cus­sions of how to reach out to, engage with, and facil­i­tate a wider pub­lic in lis­ten­ing to and mak­ing their own new music. One idea that was thrown around dur­ing the FORUM and since is the poten­tial for CNMN to spear­head a Cana­da-wide pub­lic engage­ment project in which com­mu­ni­ties from across Cana­da are brought togeth­er in a col­lab­o­ra­tive cre­ation project.

Any­one who is inter­est­ed in either sit­ting on this com­mit­tee or dis­cussing this project, please con­tact me by email at
