Fulbright Research Sharing Series: Music as a Global Resource
June 29, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In an effort to offer meaningful educational exchanges between Fulbright grantees, One To World is continuing to offer its ongoing series where Fulbright scholars have a platform to share their research to Fulbright student and scholar attendees.
At our fourth session of the 2021-2022 academic year, our presenter will be Fulbright Scholar from Australia, Professor Brydie Leigh Bartleet, who is doing her research at New York University. In her talk, she will discuss changing the world with music: insights from Music as a Global Resource.
As the world comes to grips with the far-reaching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of music, the arts, and cultural understanding has become more important than ever. As the current pandemic has highlighted, we are in need of creative solutions to the challenges facing communities and societies at large. This presentation will share powerful examples that demonstrate how music can play a role in solving some of the most difficult problems of our time from mental and physical illness, to poverty, natural disasters, and war. These examples will come from the Music as a Global Resource Compendium (5th Edition), produced for the United Nations 75th Anniversary by Fulbright Senior Scholar Professor Brydie-Leigh Bartleet and her Fulbright Host at NYU Professor Barbara Hesser. This edition features 109 exemplary projects that are using music to contribute towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Working across 54 countries, the featured projects are addressing some of the most complex social, cultural, health, educational, environmental, and economic issues facing our time.
