Engaging with our surroundings
NMH’s social responsibilities divide into three equal parts: To offer excellent higher education, to conduct artistic research on an international level, and to share knowledge and research results with our surroundings.
Our social responsibility obliges us to manage, renew and distribute knowledge obtained from our extensive musical tradition. It obliges us to play a dynamic and relevant role in society and actively use our knowledge in public debate. Our responsibilities oblige us to demand innovation, reliability and openness.
Our ambitions for 2015-2018 emphasize being a prominent presence in the public eye and affirming our social responsibilities. The ambitions invite us to communicate more clearly and to increase our knowledge of target groups and channels of communication.
Our strategy encourages us to listen, to share and to contribute. It challenges us to seek out impulses form all over the world and to participate in international networks. It encourages us to collaborate and create dialogue.
