This second 'Made in London' one-day conference continues the theme of the
first conference, held on 28 May 2016, in examining the making and
development of musical instruments in London from the seventeenth century
to the present day.

All interested parties are invited to attend and, through shared discussion
of current research, to generate a better understanding of cultures of
music and instrument making, the standing and significance of London as a
centre of music and instrument making, and issues affecting past and
current practitioners.  The programme has been selected to promote dialogue
between the practical and theoretical, to refresh organological thinking,
and to develop new collaborations in the practice and analysis of musical
instrument making.

The Made in London initiative aims to address questions such as these:
How did the making and development of musical instruments in London
develop; to what influences was this subject and what influence and impact
did it have?
How do cultures of music making in and around London relate to those of
instrument making there?
How has the development of musical instrument making related to and been
supported by other specialised crafts, trades and industries, such as
toolmaking, clockmaking, the decorative applied arts, and supply trades,
including those depending upon international commerce?

*The centenary of the founding of the National School for the Music Trades
in 1916*
The conference also marks and celebrates the centenary of the founding in
1916 of the National School for the Music Trades at the Polytechnic
Institute of North London.   Via a succession of institutional name
changes, the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture & Design of London
Metropolitan University, which incorporates the former London College of
Furniture, is the direct heir to the School.  With the collaboration of the
university archives, a small exhibition of documents, drawings and
artefacts will trace the history of the School.
