EMX launches the second call for applications: EMX Capacity Building Programme

EMX is a new project, funded by the European Commission and implemented by a consortium of European music export offices and cultural institutions, aimed at finding new strategies to develop and promote European music in the world.

Hand in hand with networks representing European music professionals, artists, musicians, authors and composers, the general objective of this work will be to generate new knowledge and approaches to European music export through research and innovative pilot actions. The pilot actions include trade missions, international delegation tours, capacity building programmes and research studies.

The EMX Capacity Building Programme 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. Apply now if you work in music export, are based in the EU, speak fluent English and if you want to help design music export programmes of the future.

EMX is looking for 15 music exporter professionals, who above all are passionate about connecting people and keen to explore new ways of exporting music. Do you work at a music export office or on export initiatives with similar aims? Are you responsible for helping artists, managers and labels realise their export potential? Then we want to hear from you.
