CREATIVES, MANAGERS IN TRAINING
The Urban Policy pillar this year is headed by our friends at Pro Progressione, and consists of bi-weekly training sessions with urban creatives. During the first session, last Friday, urban creatives learned about the European Agenda for Music from Katharina Weinert, policy advisor at the European Music Council, and one of the MOST Music experts. Urban creatives will undergo this training on their way to pitching their project, among which the best ideas will be selected and realized. We can’t wait to see what these young professionals dreamt up!
Meanwhile 26 management training participants are waiting to begin their training this Friday, that will go on for 5 consecutive weeks and will eventually end on December 11. The first session of the training will have two courses – after introduction, we’ll talk serious business, from the concept of world music (by Simon Broughton of Songlines) all the way to project management (by Szilvia Bellay, COO of Hangvető).
And why train young managers? MOST provides training for booking agents, artist managers, promoters, venue or festival curators, label managers and facilitators. The goal is to equip them with the necessary skills, tools and network to represent the region’s artists in the global market, and build a sustainable creative environment for world music. Trainers include accomplished professionals with an extensive set of skills, network and international experience.
We are very excited about these two pillars, so abundant with creative energy!
