The AEC Preparatory Working Group members work on the preparation of AEC events on voluntary basis. The AEC Preparatory Working Groups are all formed by coopting active individuals in the relevant field of specialization within AEC member institutions. Proactivity, as well as geographical and gender balances are the applied criteria to guarantee the diverse and dynamic character of the groups, who should ideally recreate the diversity of AEC members institutions.
Working Group members are financially supported by their home institutions, which cover their travel and accommodation expenses to the working group meetings and to the actual event.

AEC POP & JAZZ PLATFORM MEETING 2019
15-16 February 2019
Dear colleagues and friends of the Pop & Jazz & World Music Platform!
On behalf of the PJP working group it is my great pleasure to invite you all to join us for the next annual PJP meeting in beautiful Trondheim, Norway on February 15-17 at the Music department of the Norweigan University of Science and Technology, NTNU. The theme of this years conference is “Listen” which resonates perfect with the music department´s philosophy both in teaching practice and research. We will also have a group of artists, teachers and experts that will go deep in the discussion on the conference theme and the aspects of listen in music education today.
We also know that there is a high level of expertise and knowledge within the PJP community so we are keeping the “ Open Floor” from last year which was highly appreciated among the delegates. Open Floor is a session where delegates from the PJP community have the opportunity to share great ideas and practice with the PJP community by giving a short presentation for 10 minutes followed by an audience discussion on topics like new and innovative curriculum design, issues in learning and teaching, methods on artistic and personal expression, new technology in education, genre perspectives or intercultural and international aspects of education. This session depends entirely on the delegates willingness to share their knowledge so please take the time to propose a presentation when you fill out the registration form.
This year we are very happy to continue to arrange a pre-conference meeting on folk/worldmusic for the second time on a European level. We are trying to bring the PJP and the world music communities closer together. Each genre has of course it´s own very special features but there are more aspects that units us and we strongly believe that we could all benefit from working together and sharing expertise. Please feel free to join the preconference on thursday february 14 if you want to join the world music discussions.
So welcome to a vibrant city full of music and delicious food, beautifully situated at Trondheimsfjorden on the west coast of Norway.
“Listening is an art that requires attention over talent, spirit over ego, others over self.” - Dean Jackson
Best wishes and I look forward to seeing you in Trondheim!
Chair of the PJP working group
