STATUS is a collaborative network of music centres in the Nordics, founded with the aim to strengthen Nordic collaboration in classical and contemporary music, starting with a preliminary investigation into the classical and contemporary scene in the Nordics.
STATUS explores, analyses and shares insights into the Nordic scene in classical and contemporary music. Initiated by Art Music Denmark, the network includes Iceland Music Information Centre (IMIC), Music Finland, Music Norway and Unga Tankar om Musik (UTOM, Sweden). The network was developed in 2021 to strengthen the collaboration of the Nordic art music scenes.
