SAVE THE DATES!The International Music Council (IMC) invites you to attend its 4th IMC World Forum on Music and 34th General Assembly to be held in Tallinn, Estonia, September 26 - October 1, 2011 under the title “Music and Social Change”. It will be co-organised by the European and Estonian Music Councils in collaboration with the Estonian Academy for Music and Theatre.
IMC presents its World Forum on Music (WFM) as a global knowledge-building platform on music and society in the 21st century, which explores a variety of topics from diverse perspectives: cultural, political and economical. The IMC World Forum on Music is considered one of IMC’s main contributions to setting the stage for the free celebration of music in the world.
The 2011 World Forum on Music will focus on five areas which IMC and EMC considers being of crucial importance to the world of music:
• Music as a tool for social change
• Current challenges and opportunities for music education
• Music distribution and export
• Music and development
• Youth: informal spaces
By seeking synergies across different sectors, this high-level forum will provide exceptional opportunities for scholars, government officials, private sector executives, civil society professionals, artists and students to engage in serious debates on current key issues. The work sessions during the Forum will be presented in a variety of formats: panel sessions with invited speakers, workshops, round table discussions and project presentations.
Come to shape the course of action for the promotion, production and accessibility of diverse music!
