The 6th World Forum on Music

28 September - 1 October 2019, Paris

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 was once again 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 was also 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 took place on the sidelines of the Forum, on September 27 and 28. More information here
