International Centre for Community Music
Join our mailing list to get updates about upcoming events.
We run a varied programme of events throughout the year which bring together an international community of community musicians.
We host regular online events through our ICCM Presents guest speaker series and ICCM Conversations, an innovative lab series trialling interactive approaches to research-focused dialogue.
Annual events include our Student Research Symposium, in partnership with Sound Sense.
