Here is the board's 10-point strategy:

#1 Art as a basic necessity
We work with art music and sound art that is driven by curiosity, and by artistic rather than commercial objectives.

#2 Fair practice – reasonable working conditions
We work to support fair practice by ensuring (i) equal opportunities for everyone (ii) fair pay, gender balance and transparent agreements, and (iii) a healthy music ecosystem based on plurality and diversity.

#3 Climate and sustainability
We work to activate the potential of sound art and art music in the green transition. We focus on how artists can work concretely with sustainability in and through their practice, and on how sound art and art music can offer alternative perspectives and spaces for reflection that contribute tochanging norms and behaviour, and breaking down barriers to action both globally and locally. We take responsibility for adapting our organization, work processes and activities to the green transition in line with the Danish Climate Act of 2020.

#4 Diversity and plurality as artistic qualities
Art giveses us all insight into other people's realities and imaginary worlds. We promote the values and qualities inherent in diverse views of art and artistic environments - views that reflect people's ability to accommodate one another through artistic experience.

#5 Recruitment to the composition profession and retention
We collaborate across the education sector,  including conservatoires and independents, to increase attraction and recruitment to composition as aprofession, and to ensure continuing, sustainable career paths for more composers.

#6 Creative art as knowledge
We work to increase opportunities for conducting independent  artistic research, and we work to increase independent funding for this research. We aim to position creative artistic work as an important field of knowledge in society.

#7 Immersive work processes
We aim to position contemporary art music and sound art as modes of deep understanding, and as manifestations nourished by professional immersion and long-term work processes, rather than result-oriented and goal-directed production.

#8 Self-organisation
Both artistic individuality and artistic communities rely on a combination of self-management and mutual collective synergies. We work to increase the recognition of decentralized, self-organized initiatives in the creative field, and we encourage public and private funders to strengthen self-organising initiatives.

#9 Space for creative work
We  help establish work and development spaces for creative work, for example through providing residencies for professional artists, workshops and camps, as well as professional production frameworks for sound-based work.

#10 Openness, networks and collectives
We work to increase opportunities for participation in organizational and professional communities, and we support open and dynamic networks and collectives with access for more people.
