How does the COVID-19 affect the programs?
All the programs that are part of MOST’s four-year project will still be going ahead, and applications are still open. Events that are affected by travel restrictions will be postponed or held online. We will notify you of new venues, dates and formats as soon as we have finalised them. Thank you for your understanding.
Why are Greece, Slovenia and Turkey not included in the list of Balkan countries?
In the MOST project, Balkans are not necessarily defined in geographic terms but as an area that shares the same music market challenges. As far as we are concerned, Greece, Slovenia and Turkey are different in this sense.
Can I apply for several Programs at the same time? (eg. apply to Balkan Music Export and Management Training)
Yes, applying simultaneously to several pillars is accepted. But please take into account, that in case of oversubscription those applicants who have successfully applied for another pillar will be subordinated.
Which organisations will be involved in the fellowships?
The list of hosting organisations will be finalised by the end of the year but some well-recognised project partners such as Hangvető (Budapest, Hungary) or Songlines Magazine (London, UK) have already confirmed their willingness.
May I apply if I haven’t yet managed any bands or worked with festivals, but I am eager to learn about this profession?
Yes, you are more than welcome!
