Museums of Musical Heritage
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Education and Creativity
Area of Effect: Cultural Heritage
Proposed by: Serrland
Description: NOTING that music is often an integral part of a nation's culture,
AWARE that music evolves and changes,
FURTHER NOTING that the preservation of music (both past and present) for future generations is a worthy venture,
RECOGNIZING that an understanding of a nation's music and musical heritage can lead to better appreciation and understanding of said nation's culture,
SUGGESTING that greater understanding of a nation's culture facilitates a greater exchange of art and ideas
ESTABLISHES the Museums of Musical Heritage (MoMH), an association of museums working in cohesion,
DESIGNATES the MoMH as a partnership of museums and institutions dedicated to the compilation, organization, and presentation of music and music related materials, including but not limited to recordings, sheet music, lyrics, and musical instruments,
CREATES the MoMH Database (MoMHD) as an online companion to the MoMH, where musical recordings, sheet music, and documents regarding music can be easily accessed by interested parties, be they in government, academia, or otherwise interested in music. This is to be accessible via the internet or by computer labs at the various MOMH facilities,
REQUESTS WITH EARNEST that nations, musicians, composers, recording studios, and music publishing companies donate, lend, share, or otherwise make available the aforementioned materials to the MoMH. While voluntary donations are strongly suggested, pecuniary compensation (if necessary) will be arranged by an impartial arbitrator,
SUGGESTS that nations make access to MoMH facilities and/or MoMHD readily available
FURTHER SUGGESTS that nations work alongside scholars and researchers at MoMH facilities on matters of research and study of the cultural impact of music, musical tradition, and musical heritage.
