FAQ

  • What is Community Music?

    Community music follows the conviction that everyone is able to make and create music. Community music’s actions are determined to encourage and support people of all ages and parts of society to make music. It creates the possibility of individual forms of expression for artistic, social and cultural matters. It enables mutual negotiation and constructive togetherness when participants are confronted with contradictions and is therefore a way to learn about and embody democracy. In a shared creation process, the main aim is not musical excellence but to improve the quality of life of a community or individual and to use music for this.

    Definitions of community music are varied and an open discussion of what we are in this setting and would like to be is important to us. With this introduction, we have only shown part of how community music is embodied in different cultures on different continents.

  • What Does Community Music Do in Dortmund?

    With all of our activities, we work from our location in the Brückviertel up to Nordstadt and further into the rest of the city. In addition to open activities that welcome everyone, we also work with institutions, primarily from Nordstadt area, over a longer period. We are interested in long-term relationships and react to the needs and desires of communities with our offering.

    Ties to Konzerthaus activities are important to us and so we also bring along musical ideas, melodies and artists to our projects.

  • When and How Can I Participate in Community Music Activities?

    You can click through our activities and simply turn up at the next date. You can also call us and we can give you insights into the different projects. No prior musical knowledge is required to participate in our activities. All of the activities that we offer are free of charge. 

  • How Can I Get More Involved with Community Music?

    We also offer a wide range of training sessions, both digital and in person, in which we go into methods and principles in more depth. Whether you are a musician, educator, teacher or social worker – everyone is welcome to try it out, learn and share experiences.

  • What Does the Community Music Sector Look Like in Germany?

    The field of community music was born in England and developed rapidly in the 60s. The approach is very new in Germany. Affiliating this type of department with a concert hall is unique in Germany so far. To further develop community music in Germany, we are building a network, developing partnerships and offering digital exchanges/training sessions.
