The upcoming event is organized by Elizabeth Carmack's Cambridge Music Conference with generous support from the School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) at Simon Fraser University (SFU). The major feature of the conference is an evening performance of new music commissions presented in eurythmy and contemporary dance. The theme of the conference is “Migration versus Multiculturalism” with the idea that the performing arts can inspire and create new social architecture through intercultural communication. We hope to develop and affirm greater sense of cultural identity and sense of belonging by redressing the unacknowledged suffering of immigrants and migrants many of whom come from war torn countries and cultures that face potential extinction, who on arrival in Canada encounter social marginalization.
