On the 24th of March 2018 the National Centre of Expertise for Cultural Education and Amateur Arts, the Cultural Participation Fund, the Conservatory of Amsterdam and the Research Group Arts Education, organized the one-day conference My music ability on the themes of music, disability and technology.
The conference presented the outcomes of the Artist-in residence project that was organized for the Bachelor of Music in Education of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. As inclusive music education and the know-how regarding accessible music technology is still an emerging field in the Netherlands, Drake Music was invited as ‘artist-in-residence’ to work with the students. The goal of the project was for students to become inspired and more equipped to work with inclusive ensembles and inclusive music classrooms.
The British Council even published an article on the conference in their newsletter
