An open invitation is extended to attend the official launch of the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI) on Tuesday, September 3, 2013 at the River Run Centre in Guelph, ON. The International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation is the next generation of Guelph's award-winning Improvisation, Community, and Social Practice (ICASP) project, an international research collaboration that uses musical improvisation as a model for building successful communities.

The launch is presented by University of Guelph President Alastair J. S. Summerlee and Dr. Ajay Heble. It will feature a World Percussion Summit with Pandit Anindo Chatterjee (India), Dong-Won Kim (South Korea), Hamid Drake (USA), and Jesse Stewart (Canada). Admission is free with general admission seating.

We’ll all be more innovative if we participate in collaborative webs and share more openly. Creativity is always a collaboration and it’s always a form of improvisation, written large in the social world.
