The 2022-24 Parsons Music Advocacy Award Recipients

The 2022 -24 Parsons Music Advocacy Awards are offered in co-operation with the International Society for Music Education (ISME).  ISME is responsible for the management of these awards.  The awards will focus on music education practices and advocacy activities that support sustaining music education opportunities in schools and communities.  The awards will provide funding for individuals or teams to develop and implement local music education advocacy efforts. Music education advocacy has been a long-term objective of ISME and this has traditionally been based on evidence-based research to support the value and benefits of music learning and continued participation or involvement in music making.

The Parsons Music Advocacy Awards are valued at $5,000USD each.  There are 10 awards to be made during this 2022-24 biennium.  Two awards are to be allocated to each of the ISME regions being – the Americas, Asia-Pacific, South Asia, Africa/Middle East and Europe.
