Transmitting Musical Heritage
On the 17th January an afternoon of workshops and concerts showcases findings from a year-long research project co-ordinated by Fay Hield. The project involved co-produced research with three community partners and four academics working together to better understand the processes at work when engaging in this kind of activity. The day is free to attend and open to all with a variety of film screenings, stalls displaying a variety of heritage projects, talks from community partners involved in co-produced research and refreshments and food available.
The event is suitable for anyone wanting to know more about the processes involved in transmitting musical heritage – the groups we worked with approached the topic through improvising world music ensembles, teaching folk fiddle styles, or conducting collecting projects with diaspora communities in Sheffield. There are also sessions looking at the methods of co-production for any students, academics or community partners interested to know more about this kind of work.
