A growing need exists for more research into the role that music can play in social practice, as well as for quality training and accompaniment for cultural workers and musicians who want to use their artistic competences to support a more inclusive and socially just society.

The Academic Chair Jonet of the Ghent University (UGent) and University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HoGent) plans to organise specialised training for musicians, social & community workers and researchers in this specific field, including lectures, workshops and seminars, yearly post-academic expert courses, and a curriculum for the training of musicians and social workers.

More information will soon be posted.
