Join us for a discussion with panel of experts working at the frontier of music, business and peace.
22 June, 10 - 11am ET (3 - 4pm UK)
Welcome to an ongoing discussion about topics specifically devoted to the relationship among music, business and peace, hosted by Indiana University and Business Fights Poverty for the months of June, July, and September. This conversation has been the aim of two conferences on “Music, Business, and Peace” at Indiana University led by scholars at the Jacobs School of Music, the Kelley School of Business, and the College of Arts & Sciences. Our intent has been to bring together national and international peace researchers, activists, and artists, to form a collective with the ability to assess and pursue peacemaking activities with the combined power of the tools presented in different disciplines.

This first discussion will place a particular, but not exclusive, focus on music.
What are the most important contributions of music to peace-building? If partnered with business, how does business help sustain the contributions of music to peace-building?
What is it that is important about furthering the efforts of peace-building through a combination of music/business approaches? How does music-making make the peace-building more effective?
What obstacles, or challenges, prevent the field from being as effective as it could be?
