Capacity building programme

The programme

This capacity building programme is one of the key parts of the EMX Project, which aims to design EU pilot programs for music export. The Programme is building on and informed by the findings on the needs, challenges and opportunities for music exports uncovered by the research in the first part of the EMX programme [read more about all elements of the project here] and previously in the Study on the European Music Export Strategy.

We will engage a group of 45 music industry professionals including 15 exporters, to come together and explore cutting edge methods of music export, from new funding models to digital collaboration, mentoring to job shadowing, while also examining the challenges faced by artists from across Europe when trying to export their music worldwide. This programme will produce results looking at the most impactful methods of export for artists and the tools that export offices need in order to support and develop talent in their own countries.

Modules:

  • Music as a Business

  • Navigating the “New Normal”. New trends, challenges and opportunities in the (post-)COVID world for music export

  • Music export from a European perspective

  • In-depth look at a market: India

  • Learning from the past and designing the future
