    In 2016 ISCM Slovak section engaged in numerous activities centred mostly around its music educational projects, and others as well. Hereby we give a short chronological overview:
    In the beginning of 2016 the international Visegrad/ISCM project VENI ACADEMY: 4x4 came to its closing. The project started in October 2015 with new music workshops in Brno (CZ), Wroclaw (PL) and Budapest (HU). The output of the project was an almost week long series of workshops in Bratislava, ending with a concert at the Radio_Head Awards festival, featuring pieces submitted in an international call for works, which was also broadcast live on national radio station Radio Devin.
    In April 2016 one delegate from the Slovak section was able to take part in the ISCM World Music Days and General Assembly in Tongyeong, South Korea. At the festival the piece by Iris Szeghy “Gratia gratiam parit” was performed by a choir.
    In July 2016 another summer academy of the VENI ACADEMY project took place in Košice, Eastern Slovakia. It was organized together with Hungarian and Polish ISCM sections and the Czech ensemble Prague Modern. This academy had further outputs in the Czech town Trstěnice (where every year composition and percussion workshops are organized) and partially at the festival “Musical Gardens” (Ogrody Muzyczne) in Warsaw (upon the invitation of Zygmunt Krauze). Students from Czech Republic, Poland, Croatia, Hungary and of course Slovakia took part.
    In September 2016 ISCM Slovak section held its annual members’ meeting where projects from 2015 and the ones already organized in 2016 were overviewed and members for a joint jury of the two Slovak ISCM members were appointed for tha Call for scores for the festival in Vancouver, 2017. The jury had 2 representatives from each ISCM member.
    In 2016 ISCM Slovak section paid its ISCM membership fee very late due to changes in the main source of funding for this fee; we are no longer able to request a grant at a government level and are forced to cover the whole amount with our own resources.
    Beginning of 2017 saw again a performance of VENI ACADEMY at the festival Radio_Head Awards, this time in cooperation with Cluster ensemble. The concert was an hommage to the Slovak concept artist and musician Milan Adamčiak, who passed away in January 2017.
    Later on, in July 2017, another music academy abroad was organized, this time together with the Polish organization Stowarzyszenie Lokalnych Ośrodków Twórczych. VENI ACADEMY became part of the SLOT ART Orchestra, which performed open and graphical scores by many influential composers from Slovakia and the world scene.
    Further projects which await us in 2017 are the “All Reich” concert with his Six Pianos performed on 6 concert grand pianos, a series of workshops for music educators in the framework of the New Music for Kids and Teens project and two autumn VENI ACADEMY sessions in Košice with a concert at the "Nuit blanche" festival (Sept. 30) and at the ARS NOVA festival . Two delegates from the Slovak section will attend the 2017 festival in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
