Panarchy (in the Uk): How Do Music Ecosystems Deal with Crises and Change?

Steijn Koeijvoets 3S Music Management, Joost Vervoort Utrecht University, Nynke Tromp TU Delft, Angharad Cooper Center for Music Ecosystems


English spoken

ESNS22_picto_black_.png How do music ecosystems build their capacity to deal with the ongoing changes and crises. We will explore the idea of the music sector as an ecosystem. What does this mean, and how do these music ecosystems work? What are they, and what are they not? And what is the shift in mindset that is needed to the music sector. Next to that we will dive into the resilience of these systems. How does the music sector deal with crises like the Covid pandemic, or changes like digitization? Where lie the weaknesses and the strengths of the sector, and where is the resilience of the sector embedded. These questions will be discussed by a mixed panel of music sector professionals, an ecologist and a systems designer.

    Nynke Tromp TU Delft

    Nynke Tromp works as an assistant professor Social Design & Behaviour Change at the department of Industrial Design, Delft University of Technology. She co-runs the Systemic Design Lab, is co-founder of Redesigning Psychiatry.
    Tromp’s main aim is to understand what designers can bring to table in the light of complex societal issues. On the one hand, she focuses on the artefact (i.e., the product, service, programme or system) and its capacity to shape people’s behaviour. She studies how designers can use this power to foster desired societal transitions. On the other hand, she focuses on design thinking and methodology, and more particularly integrative thinking and reframing, as valuable skills in face of complexity.
    Her thesis Social Design (2013) and her book Designing for Society (2019) represent her study so far. To ensure the practical value of her research, she has worked at Reframing Studio and collaborates with various societal partners. She has worked on a great variety of topics like democracy (see her TEDx presentation), organ donation, and recovery from psychosis. She is currently active in the domain of mental healthcare, food consumption, safety, reintegration to work, and wildlife trade.
    Aside from her academic positions, Tromp is part of the management team of the Delft Design for Values Institute, part of the editorial board of Social Design Showdown, and committee member Social Design at Stimuleringsfonds.
