Composing for city or countryside

12 November 2021

During the conference, forward thinking speakers working in the arts – and with the arts – will discuss a variety of topics. One example: what does it mean to be assigned as the official composer of a city? In the Dutch province of Brabant, several ‘city composers’ write new music for and with their towns of residence. And there is even an officially assigned composer for the countryside! In this panel talk, Angela de Weijer, Mathijs Leeuwis, Bart de Vrees en Piet-Jan van Rossum will discuss perspectives and approaches, as well as the many questions that come up while working in public service.
