Ivory towers, joined up thinking & a place to play a festival as motivator & facilitator in community music & healthcare
Philip Curtis, CityProms Foundation Leeuwarden (NL)
In this presentation, Philip Curtis (CityProms Foundation, Leeuwarden NL) will show how a festival can help form non-hierarchical, cultural partnerships linking centres of excellence, such as conservatoires and professional symphony orchestras, to education and healthcare projects. He will also challenge the traditional, hierarchical approach to musical training in the context of lifelong learning, to empower musicians to join community and healthcare practices. Festivals are in an advantageous position when it comes to facilitating community music and the use of music in healthcare. They do not need costly buildings; they can be flexible in programming; they can provide a platform for disseminating information; the focus of primary activity is a short period and so administrative personnel can be shared with their other activities. Moreover, a festival can act as executive producer to connect the research and training of a practice with the communities for which it was designed.

The CityProms Festival in Leeuwarden, Friesland is a classical music festival, established in 2011. CityProms Embrace, its participatory arm, is responsible for a number of education, community and healthcare projects in the north of the Netherlands. It is particularly involved with music programmes for vulnerable groups, including a programme for people living with advanced dementia, based on Wigmore Hall Learning’s Music for Life. CityProms Embrace fosters links between the Research Group Lifelong Learning in Music of the Hanze University Groningen; the master’s programme New Audiences and Innovative Practice of the Prins Claus Conservatoire Groningen; the North Netherlands Orchestra; Keunstwurk, the Friesian umbrella organisation for amateur arts; regional and city governments; and the healthcare sector. With its education partners, CityProms Embrace also offers musical training for student-, talented amateur-, and professional musicians, and also for healthcare staff and carers. It also initiates research into its own practices, with the University Medical Centre Groningen.


Philip Curtis was born in London and graduated in Music from the University of York. He has worked in theatre as opera singer, actor, director and writer. His work includes all forms of music theatre from opera and musical, to contemporary music theatre. He is an internationally recognized teacher of theatre for musicians at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague and the Prins Claus Conservatoire in Groningen, where he is a faculty member and co-developer of the New Audiences and Innovative Practice master’s degree, in the subjects of Performance and Communication, The Musician as Actor and Music and Dementia. He is also a guest teacher at numerous international conservatoires. He is co-founder of the CityProms Foundation in the Netherlands and is Co-Director of CityProms Embrace, the education, health and community branch of the CityProms Festival in Leeuwarden (www.cityproms.nl). He is responsible for the training and deployment of musicians in numerous healthcare activities with vulnerable groups, and also for the musical training of healthcare staff and voluntary carers, to encourage the everyday use of live music.
