Dr Karolien Dons
As of 2023, Karolien Dons is professor of Music in Context. With the research area Music in Context, Karolien contributes to the development of engaged music practices and connect musicians to societal issues, by initiating and supervising applied research.

Music in Context professorship
The Music in Context professorship is part of the Research Centre Art & Society and focuses on the roles and approaches of musicians who are active in both the arts and other fields. An example of this is the 'Can you hear us?’ project. This project studied the development of a virtual music practice for elderly people living independently and focussed on the contributions of music to participants’ needs at the interface between formal and informal care.
