International Festival for Artistic Innovation

Posted: September 12th, 2013 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments »

Leeds College of Music is pleased to present the launch of the International Festival for Artistic Innovation (IFAI) that will take place on 10-14 March 2014. IFAI will act as an umbrella to embrace a diverse range of music making and practice-led research. Established annual events, the International Festival for Innovations in Music Production & Composition (iFIMPaC) and the Leeds International Jazz Education Conference (LIJEC), will form part of the Festival along with developments dedicated to contemporary classical and popular musics.

IFAI looks to the 21st Century and recognises the importance of interdisciplinary and collaborative practices for the arts. It will bring together concerts, presentations, interactive workshops and masterclasses that reflect music production, electroacoustic music, jazz, contemporary classical music and popular music (composition, performance, production and pedagogy in both their ‘distinct’ forms and as part of interdisciplinary arts practice).

You can find the full details for submitting here. The deadline for submissions is 1st October 2013.
