The IMC World Forum on Music
September 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - October 1, 2019 @ 10:00 pm
A special celebration for the 70th anniversary of the International Music Council will be held in the framework of the 6th World Forum on Music to be held in Paris, 28 September – 1 October 2019.
Give me Five! The 5 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.
A non-commercial initiative, the forum allows government officials, private sector leaders, operators, activists, academics and practitioners to engage in high-level interdisciplinary discussions and brainstorm together on guidelines for action.
For the 6th edition of the Forum in 2019, the members of the IMC wished this edition to be held in Paris in honour of the 70th anniversary of the organization.
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.
The General Assembly of the IMC, Annual Meeting of the EMC and other regional meetings will take place on the sidelines of the Forum, on September 27 and 28.
