Naseer Shamma is being named UNESCO Artist for Peace for his work to support music education for young people in Iraq and beyond, and in this role he will support UNESCO's work on education for peace among young people.
Interesting fundraising idea in Australia. The rights collections body (APRA/AMCOS) has teamed with the Australian Cultural Fund plus a call for public donations which the ACF will match. All to find the money to fund grants for art music compositions. Making partnerships work?
