About the PRIhME project:

PRIhME is the first attempt to address how power relations inequities in higher music education can adversely affect our culture, our places of study and work. Power relations in the musical context are nuanced and complex because they have pedagogical relevance and can affect [mental] health both during studies and in the workplace.

AEC and the partner’s goal was and still is to foster a safe and healthy sector in which we can train and educate creative and socially engaged performing artists through policy recommendations and examples of best practices.

PRIhME has thus worked with the following four themes in four Stakeholder Assemblies:

– Understanding Power Relations and Music

– Sexual Orientation and Gender

– Socio-Economic background and Disability

– Artistic Standards

The 50-person PRIhME Stakeholder Assembly included students, teachers and administrative personnel from 9 European institutions and met regularly to address these four themes.
