Other campaigns

Representing music professionals

The ISM campaigns to secure more opportunities for composers and protect composers' copyright. Following our previous work in support of our members who compose, we launched a survey of composers which ran from 19 April to 12 June 2012. We received comments from 120 composers.

Supporting Olympic musicians

The ISM believes that musicians should be paid for the work they do. We are backing the petition calling for musicians performing at Olympic events to be paid.

Instruments on Planes

Many musicians experience difficulties when travelling with airlines. We are gathering stories to help inform our campaign for better treatment.

Bacc for the Future I

The ISM led the Bacc for the Future campaign to secure the place of music and other creative subjects in school league tables.

Campaigning for live music deregulation

Since the introduction of the Licencing Act in 2003, live music in small venues in England and Wales has been in decline as regulations, bureaucracy and cost put musicians and their venues off holding small scale events.
