UF SSM | Creative Resilience Symposium | Schedule
Schedule for Friday, October 15th (in MUB101 unless otherwise noted)
This two-day creative symposium will celebrate diverse perspectives and veins of artistic expression following the isolation imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. We will elevate an appreciation for innovative thoughts, collaborative compositions, and the fostering of community harmony on the UF campus and in community with scholars at other institutions through scholarly engagement and performances.The first day of the symposium (Friday 10/15) will feature a department showcase, concert with student and faculty performers, and student writing workshop. It will provide an opportunity for students and faculty in the School of Music (SoM) and College of the Arts (COTA) to connect and share ideas more broadly through various mediums with other departments, who will also benefit by speaking about their work and resources for potential student collaboration.The second day of the conference (Saturday 10/16) will feature a schedule of virtual paper sessions with research by students and professors (from various institutions) and a keynote speech by Dr. Nina Eidsheim from UCLA, providing an opportunity for further engagement with new ideas and a virtual venue for networking among creative graduate scholars and faculty.All activities on Friday 10/15 will take place in-person, but the presentations on Saturday 10/16 will be facilitated online to further participant involvement and conference accessibility.
