Music and Memory: Panel-led workshop 1

This workshop brought together musicians and scholars to elicit the distinct contribution of music – as opposed to silence and non-musical sound – to commemoration and healing.

The first workshop in our Aural Commemoration strand took place on Saturday 28 April 2018 at Harris Manchester College. Panellists included: Peter Grant (Senior Fellow in Grantmaking, Philanthropy and Social Investment, Cass Business School, London); Laura Hassler (Director, Musicians Without Borders, The Netherlands); Rihab Azar (Musician and Performer (oud); MA in Music Education, University College London); Chair: Dr Kate Kennedy (Weinrebe Research Fellow in Life-Writing, Oxford Centre for Life-Writing, University of Oxford).
