Music Council for Asia-Oceania


In October 2010, the first meeting of a working group to establish a regional music council in Asia/Oceania was held at Gulangyu Island, Xiamen, China, generously hosted by the Chinese Musicians Association.  Representation from North, East, South and South-East Asia and Australia, discussed the potential of a regional music council, and decided to meet again in February 2011 to consider proposals for the establishment of the regional council.
The second meeting of the steering group was held in Davao, Philippines at the time of the Third International Rondalla Festival, hosted by the Festival and the City of Davao. The Secretary-General of the IMC attended the meeting, and assisted with discussions regarding the establishment of a regional council of the IMC. Professor Xie JiaXing from the IMC Board also attended. The meeting confirmed intention to establish a the Music Council of Asia and Oceania (MCAO), and resolved to call the inaugural meeting of the Council at Tallinn in September 2011, coinciding with the IMC 4th World Forum on Music and the IMC General Assembly.

Inaugural meeting

The inaugural meeting of the MCAO attracted much attention, with attendance from a wide range of countries in the Asia-Oceania regions, and interest expressed from a number of delegates unable to attend because of visa restrictions.

The meeting elected Professor Gary McPherson (ISME, Australia), Professor Wang YaoHua (APSE, China), Ms Julie Sperring (SOUNZ, New Zealand), Dr Suvarnalata Rao (NCPA, India) and Dr Helen Lancaster (MCA, Australia) to the Board. Subsequent to the inaugural meeting, the Board met for the first time and co-opted Mr Michael Sollis (MCA, Australia) as the youth representative on the Board. The Board also elected the founding Executive: President: Dr Helen Lancaster; Vice-President: Professor Wang YaoHua; Secretary: Ms Julie Sperring.


First regional Assembly (2012)

The Board is yet to decide on the country in which the MCAO will be constituted, and make such application; it will also arrange for promotion of membership benefits and encourage new member applications before the first Regional Assembly in 2012.

IMC and Youth




Who we are

IMC Youth represents youth from within the network of the International Music Council (IMC). IMC Youth envisions a world where youth contribute to drive freedom, access, development, recognition and innovation in regards to music.

What we want

IMC Youth aims to actively promote and encourage youth participation in decision-making processes through the IMC network and beyond. IMC Youth aims to give young people involved in the IMC network a voice, which is valuable for the future of the music sector and can be key for the recognition and solution of problems next generations are facing.

Our outreach

IMC Youth aims to have a diversity of contributors across gender, geography and genre. IMC Youth recognises that what it means to be ‘Youth’ is culturally diverse. However, for general purposes, we are defining Youth to be someone at the age of 30 and younger.

What we do

  • Promote the youth perspective in all aspects of the IMC.
  • Strive to ensure a youth presence in all regional music councils of the IMC, and work co-operatively with existing youth-music advocacy groups within the IMC network.
  • Raise awareness about youth issues in the advocacy work of IMC members.
  • Work with IMC members to create opportunities for advocacy on a national/local level, particularly the promotion of youth participation and inclusion of youth perspectives.
  • Facilitate information sharing, dialogue, networking, and other resources relevant to young people involved in the IMC network.
  • Develop innovative approaches and partnerships to strengthen the work of the IMC and its members.
