An International component for FORUM 2018: Between the Arts in Canada, Germany and Finland




  • Date: 
    Thursday, May 17, 2018 to Sunday, May 20, 2018
  • Description: 

    The Canadian New Music Network (CNMN), the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV),the Department of Music in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University and Groupe Le Vivier, along with the ISCM Canadian Section, are partners in producing FORUM 2018, CNMN’s biennial gathering of composers, performers, producers and presenters. Since FORUM 2014 in Calgary, there has been significant and valued international representation. The resulting feeling of opportunity was palpable, and indeed it did translate into concrete collaboration among Canadian and international organizations, composers and performers. (See attached success stories and testimonials.) At FORUM 2016, organizers proposed a more formal exchange between Canada, the Netherlands and the UK by inviting support from the heads of the ISCM sections of those countries, as well as presenters and artists.

    The theme of FORUM 2018 is Entr'arts / Between the Arts (see below for programming details). In addition to participating in stimulating panels on subjects such as the increasing interest in multi-disciplinary work, its benefits for community engagement and cross-cultural exchange, or the multiple toolkits and skillsets needed for inter-arts creation, guests from the Germany and Finland will participate in concerts and take advantage of opportunities for hatching collaboration afforded by three and a half days of intense contact. An important additional feature of FORUM 2018 is that two days of the event is run in parallel with Groupe Le Vivier's New Music Cartel gathering, which brings together 35 new music presenters and producers from Europe, Canada and the USA. We plan to have a special ISCM meeting to further facilitate dialogue between these different groups and to forward the mandate of all organizations.

    The activities of the German, Finnish and Canadian ISCM sections do not form a distinct sub-group, but are part of the larger FORUM. The artists and presenters participating as a result of this ISCM initiative will be involved in all general activities, including keynotes, but always with an eye to enhancing opportunities and creating collaboration among their different countries.
