We are celebrating 20 years of presenting and promoting contemporary art music in Australia this year. With its eyes and ears to experimental and art music activity in Australia and abroad, the New Music Network provides a vital forum for support, information and publicity to all its members, as well as emerging new music specialists. 

The NMN provides an opportunity to engage audiences with a huge array of the most innovative and experimental music by outstanding Australian artists. Over the past 20 years, the network has grown into a truly national body, drawing membership from and promoting events all over Australia.

In our twentieth year we are presenting the 17th Annual Peggy Glanville Hicks Address by one of Australia's pre-eminent conductors and internationally respected music educators, Richard Gill OAM, in both Sydney and Melbourne.

We are igniting discussion on the practical implications of presenting new music in Australia in 2015 with our successful NMN Workshops in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, featuring internationally renowned panelists and specialists. And we are supporting emerging new music artists in our Mini Series Events.

We welcome new members to join with us for the next 20 years, as we strive to maintain and create a sense of co-operation, collaboration and community throughout Australia’s new music field.
