SuCarMus (Sustainable Careers in Music) > Open call for applications
SuCarMus (Sustainable Careers in Music) is program consisting of a series of training sessions for young music professionals. Participants will engage to a year-long program of training activities including two intensive residentials, online mentoring/training sessions provided by experienced international music professionals, and an international networking meeting, designed to stretch them intellectually and personally.
The project is led by Cyprus Music Information Centre (CyMIC) and is implemented in partnership with Institute for Research on Music and Acoustics - Greek Music Documentation Centre (IEMA).
Through a series of workshops, lectures, consultation and mentoring sessions, 8 selected young participants will enhance their understanding of the structures and processes of the music sector value network, raising both their personal and affiliated organizations’ profiles, guided by personalized consultations and mentoring sessions from established and well-respected music professionals.
In addition, the team of fellows will have the opportunity of participating in WOMEX 2019, the most international music meeting in the world and the biggest conference of the global music scene, featuring a trade fair, talks, films and a showcase festival. The participants will enjoy a series of preparation meetings on site before WOMEX, guided by their trainees/mentors and a team from WOMEX, which is an associated partner of the project. This will give them a unique opportunity to observe the way others work and help them extend their professional networks on international level.
Finally, through the extensive documentation of the workshops and mentoring sessions, a handbook with guidelines about networking on international level will be developed and published online.
The project is specifically designed for young entrepreneurs (in the first decade of their career) in the field of music (producers, managers, promoters, labels, etc.). The program will suit emerging music professionals who would like to increase their understanding of the music sector processes and dynamics, gaining exposure to key role models and developing partnerships with peers for long-term networking and support.
