MUSIC, BUSINESS, PEACE Summit Announced for May 12

You’re invited to join us!

A day that brings together national and international researchers, activists, and artists who currently focus on two major fields of interest – “Music and Peace” and “Business and Peace” – in a series of presentations and discussions.

Friday, May 12, 2017| William and Gayle Cook Library, M285
Indiana University Jacobs School of Music

#musicbusinesspeace


As the first summit of its kind, the project will actively juxtapose and cross-pollinate a wide range of intellectual and artistic practices in the belief that a coherent set of understandings can emerge on how the two disciplines interact with and co-inhabit their worlds. The day is a discovery of ideas that will lead to a larger conference in May 2018.
