Open call to the current music students and recent graduates

Looking Outward
Seeing Music Practice in a New Light

Looking Outward is a short course for music students and recent alumni initiated by Mimi Harmer (UK) and Camilla Overgaard (DK) in collaboration with Centre for Excellence in Music Performance Education (CEMPE). 

The course itself is an act of curiosity inviting 20-24 participants from Europe and beyond to explore what they know and see it in a new light. The course consists of 4 sessions where participants will learn from other specialisms with the aim of transferring skills to their own musical practice, creating new networks and enhancing their creative collaborations. 

Looking Outward is an act of curiosity and a belief that we can learn and create extraordinary things when we work across disciplines and sectors. 

The course consists of 4 sessions and ends with a final and public presentation on Zoom. In the sessions, you will learn from creatives from other sectors including user experience and product design and explore how to transfer this knowledge to your musical practice in subsequent workshops facilitated by Mimi Harmer and Camilla Overgaard. 

Group Coaching for Mind Design – approaching learning with curiosity, compassion, and creativity.

In addition to the sessions, the Looking Outward team will offer participants the benefits and support of a group coaching experience throughout the Looking Outward project.

Group coaching is about creating action, decision, and self-discovery within a group. The Looking Outward coach, Vourneen Ryan, will provide and encourage an exploratory and learning space between all the Looking Outward group members involved in the project. Vourneen will support participants in bridging the gap from where they are now to where they would like to be.

Participation is free of charge but interested students and alumni have to apply to take part. The deadline for applications has been extended to 23 August.

More information is available on the project’s page.

We kindly ask you to share this with your current students and recent alumni.
