En liten rapport fra IAML i Antwerpen, 13.-18. juli 2014

Det er nå en måneds tid siden jeg kom hjem fra IAML-konferansen i Antwerpen,  min fjerde IAML-konferanse til tross for at jeg har jobbet som musikkbibliotekar i over 25 år. En av grunnene til at jeg ikke har deltatt flere ganger er tidspunktet for konferansen. Den har ofte vært holdt midt i juli, og det kommer i konflikt med sommerferien i Norge. Men i år reiste jeg altså til Antwerpen. Det viste seg å være en kjempefin by! Vi fikk sett litt av den da vi kjørte buss inn til sentrum om kveldene for å spise middag. Konferansen var på konservatoriet (Royal Conservatoire Antwerp), litt utafor sentrum.

Antwerpen 2014: IAML Conference, un mese dopo.

A Ferragosto in Italia o si è in vacanza o ci si ferma. Purtroppo non sono in vacanza, ma almeno posso fermarmi e ricordare con nostalgia il bellissimo Congresso IAML di quest'anno: incontri e spunti per la professione di ottimo livello, settimana intensissima nella moderna e funzionale struttura del Conservatorio di Anversa, edificio al quale nei decenni se ne sono aggiunti altri dedicati al teatro, alla danza, all'architettura creando presso l'International Arts Campus deSingel un'illuminata contaminazione nello studio di arti diverse...

Memories of Antwerp

IAML conferences always leave good memories, some personal, some professional. The story I want to share here happened in Antwerp even before our 2014 annual conference had begun, though, and is definitely of the “personal memories” variety. I had arrived at Antwerp’s multi-storey railway station in mid-afternoon on Sunday July 13, and, stimulated to a level of over-confidence by the mighty support of a Google Maps printout, had decided that I’d walk from the station to the Crowne Plaza hotel – o.k., it looked like it was a couple of miles, but I’d been sitting on trains since the morning, and needed the exercise (I’m still trying to remember exactly why I thought it would be a good idea to travel London-Paris-Antwerp on the day before Bastille Day, rather than going more directly via Brussels). And I know how to read a map, so what could possibly go wrong?
