Interdisciplinarity has become a buzz word in higher education. There’s a strong tradition of performing artists collaborating, more recently outside of the arts as well as with each other. But are these collaborations interdisciplinary? What differentiates cross-art and interdisciplinary collaboration? Why does it matter that we train artists to be interdisciplinary practitioners?
In the first of our latest series of webinars "The Future of Performing Arts Education", Dr James Andean, Senior Lecturer in Music, Technology and Innovation at De Montfort University, Ger Post, Teaching Specialist at the University of Melbourne, and Elissa Rosati, Head of Screen Production and Research Centre from the School of Film and Television of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts will discuss the relevance of interdisciplinary practice for performing artists and arts education.
