Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM), the non-profit organization that documents and disseminates music research worldwide, has kicked off its global search for a Deputy Executive Director. This is a newly created position offering significant opportunity for professional growth with the expectation that, as mutually understood benchmarks and measures are met, the Deputy will assume increasing responsibility, ultimately becoming qualified for promotion to Executive Director.
Seventy-six international, European and national music organisation are calling for policy makers to fully acknowledge the artistic, social and economic value of the music sector and to live up to these words in political decision making. IAML has co-singed an open letter on the value of music: "Claiming a front row seat for music".
IAML is one of the signatories of the Open Letter "Include Culture in Your National Recovery Strategies and Reactivate Cultural Life in Europe".
Dear IAML Colleagues and Friends,
The year 2020 has almost ended, a year that has been so different from any other year, a year during which the pandemic hit us all. The pandemic is still raging, more than ever in many parts of the world, but there is light at the horizon, several vaccines have been developed and are right now being approved of by the health authorities of our different countries. I hope that we will be able to meet and interact in ways that are more traditional in not so many months from now.
IAML Australia and IAML New Zealand are pleased to offer those working in music libraries in all sectors, an opportunity to meet, learn and discuss about how our libraries have managed the Covid-19 Pandemic, and how they will manage into the future.
