Shouting it Out!
How NZ public libraries are
making a noise about music
IAML conference Vienna, 1st August 2013
“There is a vast array of cultural engagement and interactions that
libraries can offer to connect people with the world of information
and ideas. Live music, poetry, art, dance, theatre, writing and many
more ways that connect libraries with their communities and people
with experiences that help inspire their imaginations and capacity for
Libraries also have the ability to provide people with a space in which
they share their own cultural innovations and creations with their
wider communities through performances and exhibitions.”
Future Directions
•Engagement with the community connecting people with the world of
information and ideas through innovative programmes
•Library spaces changing to be a creative and exciting community
NZ Music Commission
National Music Council 1982
“.....nation-wide participation by music groups of all kinds,
national and regional orchestras, choirs and bands and
smaller groups of performers, amateur and professional,
in many different genres, popular and classical. State
and Private radio stations as well as television will be
able to play an important role in what the Council hopes
will be a real national music festival, in which New
Zealand works will figure appropriately, but where
emphasis will be on New Zealand performers.”
