The 49th AEC Annual Congress and General Assembly 2022 will take place on 9-12 November at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon (CNSMD), France, and online. The event, entitled Changing Perspectives – Imagine new traditions” will gather about 300 representatives from Higher Music Education Institutions (HMEIs), including staff and students, and international stakeholders. This year’s Congress will foster international cooperation and exchange between AEC member institutions, and will address a wide variety of topics such as social responsibility and impact of HMEI in society, sustainability and green deal in HME, digital shift in the HME curricula, decolonisation of HME and power relations. Furthermore, AEC will be able to present the progress achieved within the first year of implementation of its new CE co-funded project “Empowering Artists as Makers in Society” (ARTEMIS), with the objective to disseminate the project activities and first results and to collect input from participants in order to remain close to the needs of the network. The Congress will feature a hybrid set of activities, including plenary and parallel sessions, as well as thematic pre-conference workshops, in which participants will be able to discuss and learn from each other.
