EOI: GAPS 2023 Student Committee

Calling all undergraduate and postgraduate AMPS members! On the 14-16 September 2023, The Faculty of Fine Arts and Music (University of Melbourne), will be hosting a hub of the Global Art and Psychology Seminar (GAPS) International Conference.

This conference aims to offer students and early career researchers (including Honours, MMus, MA, MSc, and PhD students, and PostDocs) all around the globe an innovative platform through which ideas, experiences, insights, and knowledge about (the relationship between) music, art, and creativity can be shared in an inclusive and rigorous way.

The theme of next years’ conference is: Creativity in music and arts, and we are hoping that students from music, but also the other creative and performing arts, creative technologies, and affiliated disciplines, will share research and ideas in a creatively interdisciplinary way.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from students who would be keen to join a student committee to support the organisation of the conference next year. It’s a fabulous opportunity to network with fellow students from York, Graz, and La Plata, and play an important role in helping us to redefine the way in which academic conferencing is thought and implemented. Questions we are wanting you to help us answer include: How can we involve participants that may feel excluded from standard events? How can we cut the costs for those who may not have funding supporting their studies? And how can we reduce the impact that flying to conferences has for our environment?
