As a member of the European Music Council (EMC) and therefore also of the International Music Council (IMC), the EMU will take part in the 6th World forum on Music (WFM) taking place from the 28th September to 1st October 2019 in Paris, France. The WFM will host both the Annual Meeting of the EMC and the General Assembly of the IMC. The event will also celebrate the 70th anniversary of the International Music Council, which was founded in 1949 at the request of UNESCO as the advisory body on musical matters. The EMU will be represented by its president Philippe Dalarun and Secretary General Till Skoruppa.
Give me Five! The Five Music Rights in Action
The IMC World Forum on Music is conceived as an influential global platform for sharing knowledge about music and society in the 21st century, a platform that explores a variety of topics from different perspectives: cultural, political and economic. The topics go beyond the aesthetic aspects of music production and address the mechanisms that promote or inhibit the active participation of people in cultural experiences.
This year’s Forum will once again be an important opportunity for IMC members to meet and engage with colleagues from other areas to broaden their horizons and find inspiration for new projects, even partners for their implementation. In addition to members of IMC global network, the Forum will also be open to a broad audience of all those who work in music and those who are able to make decisions for better conditions in which music is celebrated – created, interpreted, disseminated, transmitted and learned, preserved, exchanged etc., all over the world.
