Interested in partnering with us? We are currently looking for sponsors and exhibitors for the 36th ISME World Conference!

The 36th World Conference for the International Society for Music Education will be hosted by the University of the Arts Helsinki in August in Helsinki, Finland. 

The ISME World Conference is organised every second year and it is one of the world’s leading events for arts education professionals and researchers.
