To our regret, the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp will, due to Covid-related restrictions, not be able to host this year's Annual Congress. The Conservatoire has instead offered to host the AEC Congress in 2021, hopefully then in a full-scale format. The AEC has accepted this proposal with great satisfaction. 

However, there will still be an AEC Congress in 2020! The University of Music and Performing Arts (mdw) in Vienna has declared its readiness to host this year's Congress on the originally scheduled date, (6 and 7 November) although it will, due to the circumstances,  take place as an online event of a shorter duration. We are grateful to our colleagues in mdw for hosting us and look forward to our gathering, albeit virtually. The Congress will also feature  satellite locations in Milan and Tallinn

UPDATE 22 OCTOBER: the Congress will be delivered fully online

47th AEC ANNUAL CONGRESS

and GENERAL ASSEMBLY 6 &

7 November 2020 Going On(line) - Connecting Communities in the Digital Age

 
This year everything is different. In our private as well as in our professional life, we are faced with new and unexpected challenges. We were forced to get away from the way of social interaction we were used to, and only then many people realised how crucial these are to our quality of life. The pictures we have seen last spring are burned into our memories. Our sympathy goes especially to the victims of the pandemic and their families. But COVID-19 also has disastrous consequences for many of those who have survived the crisis without damages to body and soul. Especially many freelance musicians and many other professionals and workers of the music and, more in general, cultural and events sector, have lost their sources of income overnight.
Compared to this, most AEC member institutions got off fairly lightly.
As institutions that are as a rule subsidized by public funds, their very existence was never really at stake. This also entails a very particular responsibility. We can't just wait for a vaccine to come or for the epidemic to vanish in thin air and then go back to our old habits. Especially in times of crisis, Music HEIs have a special responsibility to guarantee a high level of learning and activities teaching and appropriately prepares students not only to cope with the challenges of the future, but also to proactively shape further developments.
The AEC Annual Congress 2020 is a very special congress that forces organizers and hosts to break new
grounds. When it turned out to be obvious that we had to give up our original plan to hold the congress in Antwerp, we were and still are happy and incredibly grateful for the commitment of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (mdw) to fill in at short notice. Mdw has outstanding facilities and technical infrastructures and spontaneously agreed to take the risk of hosting an AEC Congress whose precise course of events might only be known at the last minute.
It seemed reasonable to address the special challenge that is triggered by this special time in terms of content at this congress, but also to link it in a meaningful way to the leitmotif of AEC's current Creative Europe project: Strengthening Music in
Society. Albeit in a form adapted to the technical and communicative possibilities of online transmission, this AEC Congress 2020 will aim, more than ever, at connecting communities and constituencies that are divided by physical distance - among other barriers - and are therefore more and more in need to communicate, exchange, confront and collaborate. As usual and despite the constraints given by the situation, the AEC Congress will offer a whole gathering of workshops, discussion forums, best practice presentations, panels and plenaries to work together to find constructive and forward-looking solutions.
This congress should, however, also give space to try out new forms of presentation and
communication. This does not include only the use of chat rooms, but also teleconferencing systems that enable musical interaction on the Internet. Via LoLa, Milan and Tallinn will be connected to Vienna as part of a pan-European network and acting as co-hosts of this year's AEC congress.
With this in mind, you are warmly welcome to join the AEC Congress 2020 to explore new ways together with the AEC family in search of the role of Music HEIs in tomorrow's
society.

Over the last few months in particular, the Student Working Group have been considering and exploring their positions in multiple societies: their respective countries, their learning environments, the wider music industry to name a few. In the ever shifting psyche of the Black Lives Matter and Me Too movements, we are constantly trying to learn, discuss and act in response. We also acknowledge our own positions and therefore invite you to explore our experiences of prejudice and biases in conservation, before creating a safe and open space for you to explore yours. We will gather to discuss and analyze the common themes, and come up with inclusive actions to start planting the seeds of social equality in your own institutions, and raise consciousness in us all.

 
  1. SWING, results after the first 2 years of the project

Monday2nd November 10:30 – 11:30 CET - PLEASE FIND THE ZOOM LINK TO THE LIVE SESSION HERE

SWING (Synergic Work Incoming New Goals for Higher Education Music Institutions) is a strategic partnership project running from September 2018 until the end of 2021 and is funded by the European Commission's Erasmus+ programme. The SWING project main objective is to experiment and then establish a framework to dramatically increase and enhance transnational learning opportunities, by creating a set of distance learning new modules, while at the same time promote enhancement and deployment of new features in LoLa and other specialized tools for music education, both in strict collaboration with students and teachers. This session will present the result of the first two project years, during which long distance learning and teaching activities and performances have been experimented for solo instruments and small ensembles. The psychological implications of the use of LoLa for those involved will also be presented as result of the evaluation activities of the project conducted by the AEC.

 
  1. Developing a dialogue between the conservatoire and the "near society" - A Design Thinking Workshop

The workshop is meant for students, staff and leaders of higher music education institutions.

 
 
  1. EOALAB Impulse! – strengthening institutional collaboration to create opera training of the future

    Tuesday 3rd November, 16:00 – 17:30 - PLEASE FIND THE ZOOM LINK TO THE LIVE SESSION HERE

What needs to change in opera education to prepare students for future careers? How can it embrace innovative ways of learning and teaching? Which opportunities does it provide for HMEIs to collaborate across borders? EOALAB (European Opera Academy LAB) is a new partnership between seven European Conservatories and the AEC to trigger innovation in opera education. The partners collaborate across borders to create learning laboratories, exchange best practices and develop intellectual outputs which will be available to higher education institutions in music. Nurturing the concept of shared education, the EOALAB’s vision is to trigger innovation in the opera education and beyond. It aims to reinforce the link between education, training and the labour market through student-centered teaching and learning approaches while leveraging cross-border collaboration and exchange of best practices. EOALAB creates opera training laboratories for artistic experimentation and employability for both, students and young professionals. All members are part of the European Opera Academy (EOA), a network of 14 higher music education institutions sharing opera education. Join the lab! EOALAB is a work in progress. In the pre-congress session partners of EOALAB will provide insights into their findings and experiences up to now, share best practices and stimulate the discussion around opera education of the future.
 
  1. Entrepreneurship and Covid-19

    Wednesday 4th November, 10:00 - 11:30 - PLEASE FIND THE LINK TO THE LIVE SESSION HERE

The Covid crisis has hit the culture sector very hard. Concert halls, venues, festivals were the first to close and the last to reopen, with a part still not operating at all. Whether we were in strict confinement to temper the pandemic, until now, music didn’t stop. Even not live music! At this workshop we will listen to people who used their creativity, imagination…and entrepreneurial mindset to explore new business models, to build new communities, to take their social responsibility, to create new artistic work, and so much more. They needed to adapt to the changed situation and find their way to make their ideas become concrete. This workshop will let them speak of those past months and how they found solutions in very difficult circumstances still existing today.
 
  1. Re-thinking and Opening Curricula for Diverse Cultures

    Wednesday 4th November 13:00 – 16:00 - PLEASE FIND THE LINK TO THE LIVE SESSION HERE

The SMS Diversity, Identity, Inclusiveness Working Group presents its second publication “Decentering Curricula: Questions for Re-evaluating Diversity and Inclusiveness in HMEIs”, a compendium of self-reflective questions aimed to challenge the ways of thinking of curricula from a diversity perspective within the Higher Music Education (HME) institutions.
 
What do we study? What do we teach? Diversity can challenge the educational experience, and HME institutions play a critical role in this effort by strengthening the focus on promoting access and defining what is meant by quality and success when different genres and musical traditions coexist and influence each other in institutions. There are, however, no universal answers to these issues. Thus, this workshop will present questions to encourage the participants to reflect on and share experiences on how to build healthy and diverse learning environments all across Europe and beyond.
  
Where do we study? Where do we teach? In the past months, the SMS Diversity, Identity, Inclusiveness Working Group has published a series of case studies on the SMS website, as part of its first publication “How are diverse cultures integrated in the education of musicians across Europe?”. These case studies are meant to stimulate discussion, provide new ideas and show possible pathways for institutions to take. As a working group, we feel that we can learn from the experiences of others which help challenge our own ideas and perspectives. This is also our workshop’s methodological aim.
 
How do we study? How do we teach? In order to discuss common issues at HME institutions and share experiences, the workshop will draw on plenary and small group activities in breakout rooms.
