BELONGING

Tallinn 29 June – 1 July 2022

Our next conference will focus on ‘belonging’ in all senses of the word. How does a choir belong to the community it is part of ? How does a singer or a conductor belong in a choir ? What does it take for new singers and conductors to feel they belong ? How does a music organisation create an environment where all its supporters feel welcome ?

More information on topics, speakers and panelists will follow in the next weeks. 

The conference will start with a lunch on Wednesday 29 June, followed by the opening session. It continues on Thursday 30 June, with more sessions and the 40th anniversary concert of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir.

On Friday 1 July, we will organise a visit to the Arvo Pärt Centre in Laulasmaa (optional). 

Tenso Members Meeting will take place on Tuesday 28 June, preceding the conference (members only). 

The meeting is open to all interested representatives from the cultural sector and beyond. To register, send an email to meeting @ tensonetwork.eu  [remove spaces].

Registered attendants are welcome to join us for the sessions and the concert. Unlike previous meetings we will not be organising travel+accommodation for attendees but we can point you towards a good hotel option. On the spot, we will ask you to contribute to the costs of the meals organised by Tenso (lunch on 29 and 30 June plus optionally 1 July). 

We reserve the right to accept or refuse registration without further motivation.
