Food for the Mind
What music has to do with research? Everything! Analysing, experimenting and discovering: that is the essence of making music and of doing research. Under the motto ‘Food for the Mind’ students and teachers were able to discover for themselves how much fun doing research is. The research group Lifelong Learning in Music & the Arts of the Prince Claus Conservatoire organised activities relating to music and research during the whole month of October 2009 for both students and teachers of the Hanze University.
Every course at the Hanze University Groningen has its own activities during the Knowledge month. At the Prince Claus Conservatoire there were presentations by teachers within the research group who are doing doctoral research about subjects related to music. During the knowledge café’s students and teachers could discover the researcher in themselves, under supervision of workshop leaders. There were presentations about the new Research Centre Art & Society (in which the lectorates of the Prince Claus Conservatoire, Minerva Academy and the Academy for Pop Culture work together) and presentations of the Research Group Lifelong Learning in Music & the Arts as well.
Activities started at 17.00 hours and ended at 19.00 hours at the latest. Except for food for the mind, there was also food for the body, in the shape of pizza for all participants.
