Annual Report

  • Year: 
  • Please describe your organization’s activities over the past year, including concerts, commissions, collaborations, publications: 

    2017 was a busy year for the AIC with concerts, international projects and the New Music Journal. The organisation also continued to develop a number of new initiatives, including the new series of conversation and discussion events, an advocacy working group and finding ways to represent a wider range of compositional approaches and styles. In addition to this, after a year of reflection for the organisation in 2016, the AIC reconsidered its place in the new music community in Ireland. A number of member-suggested changes to our priorities and activities were implemented, and we rewrote our mission statement and policies. 2017 was an exciting year of continued progress for the organisation.

    Summary:
    Membership is now at 105, with more applications to be considered. We presented 15 events nationally, and 3 internationally
. The AIC New Music Journal published 9 Articles and 3 Shorts. We continue to increase our presence and impact on social media: Facebook likes have grown from 827 to 971; non-member mailing list subscriptions have risen from 74 to 94; and our Twitter followers number 580. We secured funding from a number of sources: €2,500 from IMRO towards running costs, €10,680 from Arts Council Ireland towards our Talking New Music initiative, €1,500 from Culture Ireland towards our international programming. We met our current gender-representation goal of 30% overall representation of female and female-identifying composers in events. Current membership balance is just below this figure (29.72%). We continued to work with our advocacy working group to be the voice of contemporary composers in Ireland.

    The AIC committee for 2017, as voted for at the AGM January 2017, was as follows:
    Michael Holohan – Chairman
    Anna Murray – Secretary
    Oliver Hynes – Treasurer
    Jenn Kirby – Web Manager
    Peter Moran – Journal Coordinator
    Martin O’Leary
    John McLachlan
    Enda Bates
