Music Engagement Program Featured in United Nations Compendium

Saturday 23 April 2016

The ANU School of Music Music Engagement Program, headed by Associate Professor Susan West, has again been included in the 2015 edition of the Music as a Global Resource Compendium. The Compendium will be published by the United Nations on the Public Administration Network, and made available to members of the UN General Assembly.

'The MEP is very proud to be named amongst an international community who seek to use music for societal wellbeing.' Says the Music Engagement Program's Georgia Pike.

The MEP were first included in the Compendium in 2011. The Compendium is a resource used to illuminate the universal power of music. It features information and communications technologies being used and explored to solve critical economic, social, and health issues on national, regional and local levels, all around the world.

'Being included in the compendium means a great deal for the MEP and for other programs with a similar intent.  It is not often that grass-roots programs of this type are acknowledged or recognised for the important work that they do in their local communities.' Pike adds.

The Music Engagement Program is listed in the 'Lifelong Learning' category of the Compendium. You can find out more about the MEP, its work and involvement in the Canberra community, here
