Date
Thursday 11 July 2019 - 09:30 to Saturday 20 July 2019 - 16:30

In July 2019, as part of the “Art & Inclusion” programme, British Council in Taiwan collaborates with National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) to invite Manchester Camerata and Julian West, Head of Open Academy from Royal Academy of Music to deliver various workshops and give talks, aiming to provide relevant knowledge and training for Taiwanese art practitioners who are interested in community services and/or working with the elderly. Hopefully it will open up interactive dialogues with the elderly and create a more inclusive society through these practitioners’ own musical and artistic skills involving improvisation, co-creation and participation.
