>>From 13 to 16 September 2012 The CHIME Foundation and Leiden University in
    >>The Netherlands will host a workshop on the topic of Chinese Instruments
    >>and Western Museums. The aim is to share and exchange information in the
    >>realm of Chinese musical instruments, in an open, informal atmosphere. The
    >>meeting should be of interest to museum curators and others who work with
    >>instrument collections, and scholars active in the realm of Chinese
    >>instruments and instrumental music.
    > The meeting takes place in the wake of the initiation of the MIMO project
    > (Musical Instrument Museums Online) which was started in September 2011.
    > MIMO opened a public online access point to the musical instruments
    > catalogues of the project’s affiliated museums in Europe
    > ( This massive body of information
    > will serve as a useful resource for the study of world music cultures. The
    > database will hopefully benefit a wide group of users, including the
    > source communities, music and creative industries and the general public.
    > The MIMO project raises important issues related to music research, such
    > as the relationship between academic study and the public exhibition of
    > musical instrument collections, as well as the links between specific
    > instrument collections in European museums, and how these items can
    > continuously reshape the understanding of musical pasts and can open
    > potential possibilities for future musical practices.
    > To facilitate exchange between museum curators and academic researchers,
    > the CMA (Chinese Music Archive) of the Chinese University of Hong Kong,
    > the CHIME Foundation in Leiden (European Foundation for Chinese Music
    > Research) and Leiden University jointly organize the upcoming meeting in
    > Leiden, which will feature individual papers, practical demonstrations,
    > discussions, films and some performances. Museum curators, academic
    > researchers and independent scholars are invited to submit proposals on,
    > but not limited to, the following topics:
    > 1. The relationship between Chinese musical instruments and European

    > 2. Biographies of individual Chinese musical instruments and/or a special
    > collection of Chinese instruments currently housed at European museums
    > 3. Chinese musical instruments within and beyond museum display
    > 4. Potential collaborative research and database creation projects
