The Australian Institute of Country Music (AICM) is a not-for-profit incorporated association comprising of representatives of the Gympie business, education and general community. It was formed in 2001 and grew from an interest by local community members in value adding to the economic benefits brought to the region by the National Country Music Muster. Although the Muster is acknowledged as a very successful and significant event in providing a national profile for Gympie as a centre for country music, its duration is brief.
One of the key aims of the AICM is to extend the duration and scope of country music events and activities and assist in building a stronger country music industry in Australia. The corner stone of the AICM's aim is the creation of an integrated campus for the study, performance, manufacturing and commercialisation of Australian Country Music.
AICM launch date confirmed for 10th of June. Live music and entertainment provided, come check out our progress of the insitute!
