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 learning. 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 space. 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.” NZ Music Month Auckland City Mission statement NZMM at Auckland Libraries provides an opportunity to: • promote our music collections, • music staff expertise, • and learning activity programmes and feature libraries as a community space that • supports creativity • and allows customers to experience music in libraries.
