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
