Abstract and Keywords

This chapter introduces the notion of hospitable music making as it relates to community music making practices in both theoretical and practical senses. Through a conceptual framework informed by Jacques Derrida’s writings on justice, two illustrative case studies of, respectively, a Chinese conservatoire-trained musician returning to the town of her birth to work with left-behind children, and choral conductors working in a Massachusetts correctional institution, community music projects are described as sites for social justice. As a welcome toward those who wish to participate in active music making, hospitable musical environments become places through which to explore participation and inclusion.

Keywords: hospitable, music, social justice, community, Derrida, participation, inclusion
