The Sixth International Conference of Dalcroze Studies: Ecologies of Practice in Music and Movement
Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh, USA

ICDS6 aims to present the best of current research and practice within Dalcroze Studies and related fields. ICDS is a global, transdisciplinary forum, open to viewpoints from education, the arts and humanities, and the social, health and life sciences. We
welcome practitioners and scholars alike. This year our theme is “Ecologies of Practice in Music and Movement”.

Call for submissions
At ICDS6, we welcome participants to investigate the many ecologies of Dalcroze and related practices – the complex relationships between participants, practices, musics, and social and physical environments. The conference will explore ecological
perspectives, seeking to understand vital connections at individual, communal, societal and systemic levels. Participants are invited to consider how Dalcroze and related practices are shaped by technology, climate, natural resources, health issues, economies, social and political bureaucracies, and how we affect and create change in our communities.

We invite practitioners and researchers to share their knowledge, experience and scholarship on this theme. Conference submissions may include, but are not limited to, topics such as:

●  Collective interactivity and collaborative learning;

●  Dalcroze-related practices and the human impact on the environment;

●  How a Dalcroze lens can inform one’s perception of artworks, the built or natural environment, designed interactions, systems and structures;
