4th The Changing Face of Music and Art Education & 7th Music Educators and Researchers of Young Children International Conference at Tallinn University

Playful Sounds – Personhood

This conference will stimulate new thinking about music and the expressive arts through a dynamic European network of educators and researchers whose meeting together will no doubt benefit Europe’s young children and their families’ wellbeing and aesthetic lives.

Playful sounds” describe the possibilities that music and arts have in our lives. The playfulness of creativity enables us to experience and reflect on our life in a new way.

Laura Huhtinen-Hildén – CFMAE-MERYC2015 organizers’ board member

Music allows us to imagine, create, and share sounds with other people in ways that are playful, engaging, and personal and yet socially inclusive.

Tuomas Eerola – CFMAE-MERYC2015 keynote speaker

At a first glance playfulness and personhood may seem to be contrasting understandings and attitudes intending – from a conservative point of view – a development from the first to the latter. But in our view, as well as in the context of interdisciplinary and innovative arts approaches and education today these are rather complementary and intertwined concepts cross fertilizing each other on manifold levels.
