About this Event

The 19th Symposium on Indigenous Music and Dance will be held on 3rd – 5th December 2020 in association with the 43rd MSA National Conference and the 4th annual Symposium on Indigenous Arts in the Academy at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and Victorian College of the Arts on Boonwurrung country at the University of Melbourne. The event is also held in conjunction with the 1st Symposium of the International Council for Traditional Music Study-Group-in-the-Making for Music and Dance in Indigenous and Postcolonial Contexts at National Dong Hwa University, Taiwan.

Convened by Sally Treloyn and Tiriki Onus from the University of Melbourne’s Research Unit for Indigenous Arts and Cultures and Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development, this Symposium invites proposals for presentations that explore Australian and/or international perspectives on the following topics:

  • creation, resurgence, revitalisation, and/or reclamations of Indigenous music and dance
  • de-settling historical and contemporary discourses and narratives about Indigenous music and dance in settler-state contexts
  • digital environments of Indigenous music and dance in archives, in communities and on country
  • any other topic of relevance to Indigenous music and dance

The 19th Symposium on Indigenous Music and Dance is a themed program of online keynotes, presentations, panels, round table discussions and performance/demonstrations.
