IAML has signed the open letter "Investing in Europe’s next generation by investing in culture". This statement was initiated by a number of organisations including IMPALA (Independent Music Companies Association), the European Booksellers Federation and others; the European Music Council (EMC) was consulted on this paper.
The IAML Board stands in solidarity with all IAML members and other library associations who have expressed their concern for the protection of universal human rights. We particularly wish to convey our support for the MLA’s recent “Statement Opposing Racism and Police Brutality” and the statement by the IFLA President and Secretary General, “Racism Has No Place in the Society Libraries are Working to Build”.
IAML has singed the open letter "Now Europe needs culture and culture needs Europe" initiated by REMA - Early Music Network, a member of EMC, addressed to the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU, the Heads of State, and Ministers of Culture of European countries.
“Music is one of the first sectors hit by the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.”
