One reply on “Open Forum, 23 March 2022”

Great talk from Katherine on embedding EDI approaches and values into a music curriculum that moves away from its colonial structures. Re diversity at Leeds conservatoire Dharambir Singh built up high quality Indian music education there before setting up South Asian Arts UK which now runs independently. As Katherine says music networks need to be involved. I would add outreach work is also crucial for change.
