Music has the potential to transcend social, political and cultural differences and tap into the shared essence of what makes us all human. Today, music is being explored as a useful “common ground,” upon which artists, diplomats, activists and peace builders have found innovative ways to establish social consciousness and change. At this conference, musical artists, academics, and experts share their experiences in using music to strengthen relationships in the global community. An interactive day of voices, instruments and dance, this event will explore real-world examples of how music can enhance an international actor’s efforts to engage with foreign publics, will question assumptions about the power of music,and will examine the effectiveness of this art form in international affairs, global development, and social justice efforts.

This conference will:

  • Stir conversation about the role of music in international relations
  • Challenge conventional wisdom about the “universal language” of music
  • Stimulate innovative thinking about solving global issues
  • Provide opportunities to network with leaders in international affairs, arts, and public diplomacy
