  • ‘The earth has music for those who listen’: Creativity in Music in Ireland, by Lorraine Byrne Bodley, MRIA, current President of SMI.
    This is one of three position papers written in response to the Creative Ireland Forum, the five-year initiative of the Irish Government that aims to place creativity at the centre of public policy. The set of papers, on Music, the Irish language and Creativity in the Sciences, was published by the Royal Irish Academy in late 2018.
