Special Focus Group
Inclusion and Music Education
The EAS special focus group “Music Education and Inclusion (InclusME)” gathers teachers and researchers who are interested in inclusive music-making situations and research in music education in inclusive settings.
The term inclusion can mean many things, but we embrace the notion that inclusion is seen as a universal human right. The aim of inclusion is to embrace all people irrespective of race, gender, disability, medical or other need. It is about giving equal access and opportunities and getting rid of discrimination and intolerance (removal of barriers).
InclusME aims at connecting European teachers and researchers involved or interested in inclusive education in music education to make their work more visible to the interested public. Between the annual EAS conferences, digital meetings take place to provide a platform for knowledge exchange among interested colleagues in order to organise common symposia and a forum for possible future collaboration.
