We advocate “Music for All” and work in consultation with employers, educators, festival organisers and exhibition curators in many countries. What do we all have in common? A belief that musical self-expression matters to individuals and communities alike.
We have contributed to several of ISME’s music education conferences in Kuala Lumpur, Bologna, and Thessaloniki. In consultation with our hosts we develop site specific events for different audiences or age groups; these include schools, conservatories and institutions for higher learning/teacher training and e-learning programmes for musicology departments of universities including Chennai, Aarau and Bern (Switzerland), Würzburg and Göttingen.
AIUME presentations were given at institutions distinguished by their intercultural outlook such as Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge), Museum Rietberg (Zürich) and the conservatories of Groningen (Netherlands) and Bobigny (France). We also cooperate with smaller cultural institutions and festivals initiated and maintained by culturally committed citizens.
Our presentations and workshops celebrate cultural diversity as the hallmark of any democratic society; and this in a creative manner: rather than depending on “ideal” conditions, we can make a difference even where time, facilities or musical instruments are short in supply; this includes successful collaborations with rehabilitation programmes in the UK, Switzerland and Germany.
