CEMPE Talks #5 – Gender – Quality – Creativity


Looking at the statistic, we still have a long way to go before achieving gender equality in the music industry, and at the academy. How can we strengthen equality and diversity?

Do we have to have a closer look at our traditions and the quality criteria we use – consciously and unconsciously? How can we meet the challenges in a creative way and nurture a healthy, norm critical culture?

These are some of the questions raised in the open panel discussion CEMPE Talks #5 on gender equality.

The panel consists of

  • Rune Rebne – composer, associate professor, project manager of Jenteprosjektet leader of the Committee for Diversity and Equality.
  • Tanja Orning – cellist and associate professor.
  • Anna Berg – 4th-year composition student.
  • Torkill Lysne – jazz guitarist and 4th-year music education student.

The session is moderated by Astrid Kvalbein, researcher and newly elected Principal.

Closed STUDENT Talks

Prior to the debate, a discussion will be held as part of the STUDENT Talks, where students will share their experiences and discuss the subject in a closed forum.

Registration is necessary in order to participate, and only students at the NMH are eligible.

Committee for Diversity and Equality

The NMH aims to ensure that everyone – regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation – has truly equal opportunities. For this reason, we must constantly confront entrenched patterns and unconscious attitudes.

The purpose of the NMH’s Committee for Diversity and Equality (UML) is to expose imbalances, recommend measures and support the management team in efforts to promote equality at the NMH.
