And we are rolling!

We have now started up our international programme Baltic Artists in Development with musicians & managers from Poland, Estonia and Sweden.
Funding: The Swedish Institute
Duration: okt 2019 - okt 2020


Baltic Artists in Development is a programme by Musikcentrum Syd (Malmö, Sweden), Music Estonia (Tallinn, Estonia) and Adam Mickiewicz Institute (Warsaw, Poland). The programme is aiming at self-managed artists and independent artist managers, who already have some experience in the international music scene and seek to develop their international reach and industry know-how. The programme consists of three training events focusing on various music industry topics and local workshops, taking place in all three of the partner organisations’ locations.

The Baltic independent music scene is facing multiple challenges:

  • Artists and professionals need new knowledge and tools to better develop long-term careers; with fanbase, PR, touring, professional worklife etc

  • Organisations need to develop innovative methodologies and tools to offer artists and professionals the support they need

  • We need to create tools that respond to the necessity of life-long learning - as the sectors are changing

How will the programme address these challenges:

  • Collaborative work between artists, managers, national music organisations and the music business

  • Sharing the knowledge from three national markets - Poland, Sweden and Estonia

  • Creating tools for methods and knowledge for practical use around the Baltic sea

The participants will be able to:

  • discover a great deal about the music industry in general and the practice in countries involved

  • extend networks’ among local industry representatives and other participants

  • learn from peers

  • have a revised strategic plan by the end of the programme

  • be part of a programme shaped by the needs of the participants

Participants will contribute by:

  • being present at all sessions

  • preparing for all sessions

  • processing the new knowledge and experience after each session

  • taking part in creating and producing the toolbox

Events:

  • 6 - 9 November in Malmö, Sweden. Subjects: planning, sustainable professional life, branding etc.

  • 12 -15 February in Tallinn, Estonia. Subjects: how to collaborate with record labels, publishers, writers and other partners.

  • 27 - 30 May in Warsaw, Poland. Subjects: communication, storytelling, social media etc.
