HarMA+ Transnational Project Meeting in Budapest
On 20-21 January, the third HarMA+ Transnational Project Meeting took place at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary, gathering all project partners in person for the first time. The programme included, among many other activities, a recap of the project status, progress on the development of the intellectual outputs and a shared feedback-evaluation of the HarMA+ Staff Training Week for music theory teachers organised in Leipzig, Germany.
In addition, this meeting served to prepare the next HarMA+ Students Training Week 2022 organised by the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater in Tallinn, to be held in the upcoming months. Project partners discussed organisational issues, as well as student’s selection criteria and further dissemination strategies in line with the proposed programme.
AEC, as coordinator of the communication and dissemination of the project outcomes, presented the results of the first HarMA+ Dissemination event organised in the frame of the 48th AEC Annual Congress and General Assembly 2021 in Antwerp, Belgium. The event targeted around 300 HME institutions from across Europe and beyond, and consisted of:
Thursday 4 November – a 2-hours workshop aimed at giving in-depth explanations on how HarMA+ helps to develop collaborative tools, share knowledge and transfer pedagogical innovation among HME institutions, more particularly focused in music theory courses. Furthermore, an EU Bibliography on Music Theory courses was presented, as one of the intellectual outputs developed by Akademia Muzyczna im Stanislawa Moniuszky w Gdansku in Poland.
Saturday 6 November – the project was presented in a plenary during the Information Forum and Gallery for in-presence and online audience. This last session was key for a wider dissemination and engagement with participants who missed the workshop on Thursday morning.
