Mission & Vision

The Alliance seeks to actively protect the natural resources used in traditional artistic instrument and bow making through cooperation with national and international regulatory agencies. We support activities to conserve and regrow these species.
Our Goals
Our aim is to support policies, projects and rules that conserve natural resources for the future, enable their appropriate and sustainable use and reflect the legitimate interests of musicians and instrument and bow makers and express these at the key meetings of relevant organizations. Our desire is to uphold the highest standards of artistic instrument and bow making and make it possible for makers, musicians and future generations to benefit from the beauty of our musical traditions.
