Ajay Heble, Research Matters

ICASP is pleased to announce the participation of Project Director Ajay Heble in a Research Matters event on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at The Tannery in Kitchener, Ontario. This free event is part of a Research Matters discussion series, and will take the form of a panel, "Life in 2030: Discuss The Future With Those Who Are Creating It". This innovative discussion will feature four distinguished speakers in addition to Heble, including Donna Kotsopoulos from Wilfred Laurier University, Andrew Pelling from the University of Ottawa, and Amir Khajepour from the University of Waterloo. Heble's provocative discussion, "Improvisation will be at the core of sustainable communities and unprecedented change" will stimulate crucial questions on the interventions of improvisation in our communities.

The Research Matters discussion series highlights innovative and meaningful research in Ontario Universities, and is coordinated by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU). In addition to showcasing the integral work being done at Ontario's public universities, these events are also an opportunity for the broader community to converse with university researchers and share ideas. Those interested in hearing more about improvisation and its important role in transforming communities should attend Heble's talk and discover why ICASP was chosen by the University of Guelph as a featured project in the Research Matters discussion series.

Improvisation implies a deep connection between the personal and the communal, self and world. A “good” improviser successfully navigates musical and institutional boundaries and the desire for self-expression, pleasing not only herself but the listener as well.
