Music as a Global Resource: - International Council for Caring ...

INTRODUCTION TO THE

INTRODUCTION TO THE COMPENDIUM The “Music As A Global Resource Compendium” is a key component of the ongoing initiative to promote the vast potential of music and ICT as tools for national, regional and local levels to help attain the UN Millennium Development Goals. This Compendium contains more than one hundred projects from nearly fifty countries worldwide. Almost half are new while the rest are updates of previously published projects. The updated projects are particularly significant, indicating their continuing success and sustainability. The projects are presented in five sections: Music for Sustainable Community Development; Music for Mental and Physical Health; Music for Working with Trauma Survivors; Music for Lifelong Learning, and Music for Peacebuilding. They present successful endeavors from all regions of the world: Africa, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Central America and the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America. Some operate in urban areas. Others serve rural populations. A number of projects have programs in several sections and are therefore listed in each appropriate part of the Table of Contents. This edition adds a new and important component to the individual projects – research and program evaluation activities. Contact information is given to encourage interaction among interested parties and to provide direct access to project officials. By providing contact information, the Music as a Global Resource Initiative seeks to further cost-effective sustainability, foster adaptation of successful projects and exchange of lessons learned to ensure maximum use of limited funds to prevent reinvention of the wheel. In response to “Call for Action” recommendations, we suggest that countries consider including, as part of their solutions to social and economic issues, the use of “Music As A Global Resource.” The Initiative suggests the following steps: “Interactive Dialogues” bringing together high-level decision makers from government, the private sector, the entertainment industry, academia, and related NGOs to explore possibilities and guide implementation, while serving as catalysts to develop policies and procedures, upscale existing projects, identify financial and human resource requirements and address other areas necessary for success and sustainability. Having the Initiative assist in developing local cultural adaptation strategies and strengthen management and operational capabilities of existing programs, as needed, through high-quality training delivered through ICT platforms. Having research be undertaken by universities and research organizations to fast-track identification of projects and implementation. Please note that the projects presented in the publication do not imply an expression of endorsement. They are solely intended to provide information to interested parties. Professor Barbara Hesser and Dr. Harry N. Heinemann, Co-Editors XI

STRATEGIC ROADMAP……concept to reality! How can music make a difference and be recognized for other than enjoyable entertainment or means through concerts to raise funds for special causes? How can the naturally occurring use of music, as found in various cultures, be highlighted and redirected as a practical tool for consideration and adaptation to provide solutions to present day social and economic issues. With this in mind, the International Council for Caring Communities (ICCC), a non-profit organization (NGO) with United Nations Special Consultative status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), thought it an important subject to be explored and brought to the attention of government officials and decision makers when heads of state agreed in 2000 to the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The challenge was how to incorporate the powerful use of music as a means of addressing the MDG challenges. Thus began an “out of the box” approach in 2001. Inspired and guided by Dr. Mathew H. Lee, Director of the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation and a renowned global expert in using the power of music for enhanced quality of life, ICCC established a creative holistic concept: the “Music, Culture, Technology and Healthcare” Dialogue as part of the United Nations’ International Year on Dialogue Among Civilizations. This event focused on enabling the full utilization of music’s benefits as a tool for dialogue among civilizations, launching a series of conferences featuring projects that provide new understanding and awareness that music can offer solutions for social and economic issues. The series began in 2005, highlighting the first integration of ICT (information communication technologies) as a means of disseminating the knowledge from projects in the field. The “Promoting an Enabling Environment: Integrating Music, Technology, Culture, and Healthcare” Conference moved this dialogue forward with emphasis on successful local and cultural endeavors and stimulated new mind-sets as to the needs of 21 st century issues. It illustrated a broad scope of cutting edge possibilities, scientific research and community projects featuring music; its cost-effective use, and adaptation to cultural norms including integration of multi-media centers, e-technology and use of both East and West music. In 2007, realizing a global knowledge gap existed and inspired to apply the power of information communication technologies, ICCC established the “Music as a Natural Resource” initiative to “cross-pollinate” initiatives between the developed and developing world, build on lessons learned to accelerate opportunities and application of new services. Within the framework of UN- HABITAT and with other UN partners, two High-Level Working Sessions were held in October 2008 and November 2009. These working sessions gathered a non-traditional group of decision makers and experts from government, international organizations, local authorities, the private sector, academia, health organizations and the music industry to explore the use of music to enhance community, health, well-being and the quality of life for all generations. One of many recommendations coming from these working sessions was to address the information “gap” and identify successful projects from all corners of the world. Thus, with this “call for action” and mandate, the “Music As A Global Resource: Solutions for Social and Economic Issues” Compendium was created in 2009. In response to its success and immediate recognition as a useful tool, suggestions to broaden the scope of topics from the three to five sections were made: ranging from sustainable community development to peacebuilding. The Compendium is unique for it highlights not only solutions but fosters easy communication between those with knowledge and those with challenges by encouraging the use of ICT, thus promoting maximum use of limited funds.
