Music – A Public Affair?!
The overall topic of this issue, Music A Public Affair?! allowed the EMC to include a wide range of approaches. This resulted in a broad spectrum of topics covered in the articles from the EMC's member organisations which reflect the diversity of the areas of activity they are engaged in. An introductory note by Doris Pack (Chair of the Culture Committee of the EU Parliament) as well as an interview with representatives of the EU Commission give a political viewpoint on the topic Music A Public Affair?!.
Furthermore, the magazine attempts to provide a map that demonstrates how the different countries of Europe support music through legislative measures in addition to the general public funding for music. The map is not yet complete though, and we wish to continuously up-date it.
