Experience Music Project
Scheduled to open in Seattle in 1999, Experience Music ProjectTM will
combine the interpretive aspects of a traditional museum, the educational
role of a school, the state-of-the art research facilities of a specialized
library, and the audience-drawing qualities of live performances and
popular attractions. It will provide visitors with multiple opportunities
for learning and discovery. Through exhibits and educational programs,
Experience Music Project will encourage visitors to listen, learn, participate
in making music, and experience the power and joy of music in all its
forms. Experience Music Project will be an experiential place that provides
opportunities for visitors to discover their own creative potential,
rather than displaying static exhibits as most traditional museums do.

Experience Music Project embodies the idea of all people, regardless
of age, background or interests, coming together for learning and
community. Music is a common ground because of its power to cross
cultures, languages and other boundaries. Experience Music Project
is still developing, both in terms of its ideas and its physical form.
Plans are currently under way for a vast array of exhibits and public
programs that will be part of this mission.
Experience Music Project, a privately funded 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization, explores the creativity and innovation expressed through
American popular music and culture, with an emphasis on Northwest
musicians and rock 'n' roll. To this end, Experience Music Project
will educate and inspire people, encouraging personal growth, awareness
and creativity, and it will offer a spectrum of program activities
to serve audiences of different generations, interests and backgrounds.
Experience Music Project is committed to an open and broad presentation
of ideas that promote critical thinking.
