The Conference

July 2016 saw the 32nd ISME World Conference taking place in the vibrant city of Glasgow. ISME is a worldwide organisation that seeks to celebrate the diverse ways that people engage with, and develop in and through, music. ISME represents an international, interdisciplinary, intercultural network of professionals who strive to understand, promote and deliver music learning across the lifespan.

2018 Conference

See the complete message from Sheia Woodward, President, ISME 2014-2016 here

ISME is committed to connecting music educators across the world, developing networks, impact and reach. The 2018 conference venue of Istanbul was chosen to show ISME’s continued commitment to music educators of the regions and nations which are not widely represented through ISME membership.

With the current situation in Turkey being fast-paced and fluid and given the scale and complexity of the ISME event and the point reached in the planning cycle, the ISME Board agreed with the Turkish Organising Committee that the ISME 2018 World Conference will be now held in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Calls for papers and all registration details will be highlighted here as things develop.
