We are happy to report some great news from the Urban Policies pillar!
Participants are preparing to choose their mentors in early February – we are very lucky to have three experts from the frontline of music and cultural management: Katharina Weinert, policy advisor of the European Music Council, Ivan Petrovic, the President of the Managing Board at EXIT Foundation, and last but not least, Márton Méhes, former director of the Hungarian Cultural Institute in Vienna, working as an international cultural manager today. Read more about what they do on our Experts page!
Once everyone got settled with their mentor, they will help Urban Policies participants to write their tenders and support them in their pitches for their urban creative projects. After a closed pitching event – where all MOST participants are welcome, dates will be announced soon – some urban creative projects will be selected and receive funding. Tender winners will have until the summer of 2022 to execute their projects, after which an expert study will be written up about them. So exciting!
We are definitely looking forward to this process, and hope to see many urban creative projects to be born from this pillar, involving local communities and artists.
