From 20 to 23 February 2018, the Guildhall School of Music & Drama will be hosting its fifth international Reflective Conservatoire Conference: Artists as Citizens. Performers, professionals, teachers and researchers from all over the world to address the key issues in Higher Education within music and drama, this year covering the themes around the artist as citizen.

The term Artistic Citizenship is perhaps a term too much redolent of academic-speak, but it is clear from the topics being considered that the conference will be discussing issues which are at the core of artistic practice today - inclusive approaches to opera and music theatre, music and health, the role of the librettist in the future of opera, theatre censorship, social responsibility, multicultural perspectives.

Full details from the Barbican website and the Guildhall School website.
