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 firstname.lastname@example.org
