ABOUT CDIME

From its beginnings in Amsterdam in 1991, CDIME has grown beyond its initial brief of studying the phenomenon of 'teaching world music'. Countries hosting expatriate, migrant or refugee communities are also hosting communities of musical practices which affect global and local flows of musical and artistic practices between them. The fundamental challenge is to locate ways to respond to and through these communities of musical practice, not least through education. In keeping with the dynamism found in music, education and culture, this conference hopes to continue to pursue questions of teaching and learning in the creating performing and responding to folk music, art music and traditional and popular musics of the world.
