Keynote Speaker: Dr Fiona Kerr.

Founder and CEO of the Neurotech Institute Dr Fiona Kerr believes that it is especially critical in today’s hybrid world to understand music’s role in creating and supporting a flourishing society. Questions such as why playing music together or singing virtually has a different neurophysiological impact than other forms of remote connection intrigue Dr Kerr, who combines cognitive science, complex system engineering and anthropology to enhance our understanding of the wondrous intricacy of human interaction both with each other and technology. Fiona‘s music research includes its role in building trust in communities, education, innovation and health, including current work on the physical impacts music has on the brain as it ages.
Fiona consults on a range of subjects to national and international clients including Government, Defence, corporate and creatives and sits on a number of advisory panels, including the SA Creative Industries Think Tank.

‘Rethinking Music Livelihoods: New Models, New Opportunities, New Realities’
