Although it felt like forever, 2020 is finally coming to an end – and so is the first year of the MOST Music project. These twelve months were the longest of our lives for sure – but working on the MOST Music project gave us a sense of purpose and structure even in these tumultuous times.

We kicked off the project before everything changed, in 2019 when we first met our consortium partners in Novi Sad. We also managed to meet in person in the beginning of March in Budapest for our steering committee meeting,  but after that, everything had to be planned from scratch.

But in spite of it all, we’ve received over 200 applications and the project lifted off towards success. So let’s see the first year of MOST in numbers!

  • 220 applicants
  • 20 selected festivals
  • 26 trained music professionals
  • 10 trained bands
  • 9 trained urban creatives
  • 15 trainers and 6 mentors
  • 4 days of online training courses (Balkan Music Export)
  • 5 days of online training courses (Management Training)
  • 4 days of online training courses (Urban Policies)
  • 1 steering committee meeting (in person!)
  • 1 online jam session
  • 1 speed dating session
  • 4 live MOST Music Talks
  • and many, MANY hours on Zoom!

Thank you all for following us through this year. Please note that the team behind the MOST Music project is on holiday between the 21st December 2020 and 4th January 2021.

Have a peaceful and happy holiday season, see you again on the other side!
