The Roger Covell Fellowship publicly acknowledges the contribution that Roger Covell has made to the development of the performing arts, especially music, within UNSW Australia and the wider Australian community. The Fellowship is intended to bring together leading intellectuals, artists, students, and the public to discuss, debate, and foreground through creative expression, the dynamic relationship between music and the critical issues of the present-day.
The basic aims of the Fellowship are to encourage the general public to:
- Engage with scholars, composers and performing artists of international standing in a prominent, regular forum that centres on the relationship between music and contemporary social, aesthetic and intellectual issues
- Investigate and experience music’s power to critique and express contemporary social experience
