October 16 - October 17
Music is an important part of life for many people on the autism spectrum. However, music teachers and other creative collaborators sometimes feel uncertain about how to teach, learn, and share music with people on the spectrum.
At the two-day Divergent Musicalities symposium, we will gain experience with sharing music across the spectrum of neurological difference. Through presentations, performances, and workshops, attendees will learn from musicians on the autism spectrum, music educators, and researchers studying the connections between autism and music. Through working with these consultants, attendees will gain greater confidence in their ability to co-create inclusive spaces where musicians across the spectrum of neurological difference can participate, learn, and grow in their creative practice.
