Urban Project
Hub

MOST will act as an incubator for projects connecting the music sector and cities. We will help develop and implement initiatives that draw the ties between the creative sector and the region’s urban environments closer. Policy suggestions, training and mentoring programs will serve the same purpose. 

In the Urban Project Hub pillar, we are looking for projects to support. The ideal pitch is a high impact, easily scalable project idea that will boost the city-level or regional music scene or music market. MOST acts as an incubator for these project ideas, and the best 6 get funding!

From idea to implementation

Balkan world music is a treasury of untapped potential. MOST Music is all about building a stronger, more personal network between the Balkan music market and Western Europe. But to boost the region’s music scene, there must be more opportunities locally, too! This is what the Urban Project Hub is about. We are looking for visionaries with high impact, practical project ideas that focus on their city or region. What event, workshop, initiative would best support local musicians and citizens? The Urban Project Hub is open to your ideas!

From dreamer to professional

We are looking for project ideas that have a the potential to grow and impact a large or important segment of local society. We are especially focused on project ideas that are in line with local cultural policies – so make sure you read up on these before you apply! We believe that locals know the best what their people need, and MOST Music can support the project with all the professional and financial support that Europe’s music industry experts can offer. In the incubation process of the Urban Project Hub, applicants go through training, mentoring and a rigorous pitching competition, so that their projects can be implemented in the best way.
