INTUITION – OUR SHORTCUT TO INTEGRITY
Presentation by Asta Raami, PhD
Intuition is an integral part of human thinking and one of the most important tools among creative professionals, scientists and inventors. Many composers and musicians describe intuitive experiences guiding their artistic work. This internal knowledge varies from small hunches and insights to complete download or feeling of immersion. Intuition is not just a random coincidence or emotion based on an arbitrary vibe. Intuitive skills can be enhanced and used as an intentional tool when tuning into new information. There are varying ways to intuit, all seeming to lead towards an experience of integrity.
Asta Raami is a pioneer in the development of intuition whose background is a combination of an artist, scientist, practical troubleshooter and explorer. Asta's studies and career bring together a range of disciplines, although the center has always been one thing: creativity. How to feed your creativity? How to reach more innovative solutions in difficult situations? How to go beyond the limits of one’s thinking and come up with something that has never existed.

The Blackboard Music Project is an international development and exchange project aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of concerts for Young Audiences in Europe. The project is a cooperation between ten different partner organisations - all members of Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) - represented in eight European countries. Levende Musik i Skolen (LMS) coordinates the project from their offices in Denmark.
The project encompasses three YAM Sessions (young audiences music conferences that include a producers' forum, the YAMAwards, keynotes, talks, workshops and live showcases) as well as six national YAM Showcases that will take place in the different partner countries up until the end of 2016. The events will allow Young Audiences professionals to meet for the exchange of ideas and inspiration as well as productions. The aim is to strengthen the international network, to share expertise and knowledge and to promote the international exchange of concerts for children and youth.
The Korvat kävelylle 2016 is the fifth national showcase in the project period meaning that an international delegation of project partners is visiting to experience Finnish Young Audience concerts as well as e.g. a visiting showcase from the Swedish project partner, Jeunesses Musicales Sweden.
All of the experience and information gained during the project will be assembled on the project website featuring best practices, training videos, interviews, articles and much more. Read more at yamspace.org
