Contrary to traditional university campuses the Global Music Campus is both temporary and mobile. The concept was designed together with our partners in East and Southern Africa with the aim of developing a mobile teacher training and skills development platform providing innovative new teaching solutions. Furthermore the Campus will train teachers to document their own music cultures themselves, thereby developing new teaching materials and curricula for implementation within the region.
The Global Music Campus is a unique combination of education, trans-cultural research and worldwide network. The modules developed will conform to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and contribute to exchange and mobility among music professionals both in the South-South and the North-South context. The ultimate aim is to contribute to the preservation and promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions through the creation of a regional music education network focused on the musics of the region.
