The Community Music Activity Commission of ISME, 1982-2007: A Forum for Global Dialogue and Institutional Formation
McCarthy, Marie
International Journal of Community Music, v1 n1 p39-48 Aug 2007
The development of community music as a structured activity and academic discipline occurred in a variety of social and institutional contexts during the last fifty years. The International Society for Music Education, through its Commission on Community Music Activity (CMA), represents one forum in which community musicians and those interested in such activity maintained a dialogue and exchanged ideas and practices. This article documents the history of the Commission and evaluates its contribution to the emerging field of community music.
