CFYS Fall 2021 Speaker Series: Dr. Anita Prest

As part of the Centre for Youth & Society's Speaker Series, Dr. Anita Prest will present on Decolonizing and Indigenizing music education. On Thursday November 25th (4:30pm), we welcome faculty, students and other members of CFYS to join us in learning from CFYS Research Fellows on their current projects.

In this presentation, Dr. Prest will describe a current, SSHRC PDGfunded, Indigenous-led study, entitled “From policy to practice in decolonizing and Indigenizing music education: Ensuring teacher understanding of Indigenous worldviews.” Dr. Prest will outline the partners involved in the study, their use of conference as research method, the Indigenous-led process in creating the conference, and the conference particulars. The purpose of the conference is to stimulate a province-wide conversation on how to embed Indigenous ways of knowing and being in music education classes as recommended in the BC curriculum in a way that is culturally appropriate to each location.

Registration is required:
