Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent / EAC/S21/2019
Call for proposals - EAC/S21/2019
PROFESSIONALISATION AND TRAINING
Preparatory Action Music Moves Europe:
Boosting European Music Diversity and Talent
1. INTRODUCTION - Background
1.1. Overall EU policy context for culture
This call for proposals serves the implementation of the distinct activity "Professionalisation and Training" within the context of the Preparatory action "Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent" in accordance with the Commission decision C(2019)1819 of 12 March 2019 adopting the 2019 annual work programme for the implementation of Pilot Projects and Preparatory Actions in the area of education, youth, sport and culture.
The European Union's role in the culture area is specified in Article 167 of the Treaty of the Functioning of the EU. The activities in this field at EU level are defined by the multiannual Work Plan for Culture (2019-2022) of the Council and are framed in particular by the New European Agenda for Culture adopted by the European Commission, which aims to reinforce the role and position of culture in an increasingly globalised world.
In this context, the role of the European Commission (hereinafter: the Commission) is to help address common challenges, such as the impact of the digital shift, changing models of cultural governance, and the need to support the innovation potential of the cultural and creative sectors.
The Creative Europe Programme has served since 2014 as a consolidated framework programme in support of Europe's cultural and audio-visual sectors. It has supported the implementation of actions in line with the EU's cultural policy. In the context of the preparations of the post 2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), the negotiations on the next Creative Europe programme have started with the aim to build on the existing Programme's achievements to date, and to scale up efforts to safeguard cultural diversity and strengthen competitiveness of the cultural and creative sectors.
1.2. The music sector in Europe
Music constitutes an important pillar of European culture. Aside from its economic significance - it employs more people than film and generates more than 25bn EUR revenue annually - the music sector is also an essential component of Europe's cultural diversity, social inclusiveness and soft power diplomacy and it brings positive changes to many levels of society.
Based on small and medium businesses with a strong potential for growth and job creation, the European music sector has been strongly influenced by the digital shift: new distribution channels, powerful digital players, innovative start-ups, business models and consumption patterns have emerged over the last decades.
The music industry is therefore changing and finds itself at the forefront of an unchartered territory, most certainly paving the way for the other content industries. The unstable music ecosystem calls for an increasing need to mobilise the sector as well as policy makers to face such new challenges and explore the related new opportunities. As actions and policy initiatives at national level often prove neither sufficient nor suitable to encompass the global nature of the industry and of the consumption schemes, there is a need and a demand for an EU intervention to support Europe's key assets in the music field: creativity, diversity and competiveness in a context of globalisation.
In 2019, the Preparatory action "Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent" should build on and complement the two calls for tender and the two calls for proposals that the Commission launched in May 2018, during the first year of its implementation. It should address the music sector's specific needs in the short and medium-term. With an increased budget of 3 million EUR, the 2019 Preparatory action offers an opportunity to develop initiatives on a larger scale than it was possible in 2018 and to explore ways of cooperation in different relevant areas for the music sector.
1.3. The Music Moves Europe Preparatory action
The Commission's legislative proposal for the next Creative Europe Programme includes the "sectorial support for music" as a new element for the benefit of the music sector, in addition to existing funding opportunities (i.e. cooperation projects, networks, platforms).
In general terms, such support would be directed towards European diversity and talent, the competitiveness of the European music sector as well as an increased access of citizens to music in all its diversity.
The Preparatory action "Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent" aims at paving the way towards such sectorial support. To this end, the implementation of the 2019 Preparatory action will follow a two-fold approach:
- to build on and develop further actions in the fields of "training" and "export";
- to implement and evaluate actions in new areas, i.e.: "small venues", "co-creation", "health effects", "music education".
The 2019 Preparatory action is designed to meet six specific objectives. The present call for proposals aims at promoting one of the objectives, namely building on the 2018 Preparatory action, to develop further elements for future programme support in the field of "professionalisation and training" of young musicians and professionals in the music sector, focussing on business-related skills (e.g. digital, management, economical skills).
Training Programme for young musicians and professionals in the music sector
The dialogue with representatives from the music sector in Europe and different studies have shown that there is a need for professionalization of the cultural sector in general and the music sector in particular as it experiences radical changes and is therefore facing major challenges. Those professional development needs are equally relevant for young professionals as for more established one in need of up-dating existing skills to meet the rapidly changing business environment. However, this call will focus on providing young musicians and professionals in the music sector who are still at the beginning of their professional career with the skills they need to develop their careers. This means not only acquiring creative and digital skills but also social, management and economic skills like drawing up a business plan, develop marketing schemes or understand the European and national legal environment, such as the copyright regulatory framework. It is also about fostering a better mutual understanding of the different work environments of artists and other professions in the music business because lines between "traditional" professional profiles - as we have known them in the past - are blurring, job descriptions are changing and new professional profiles are emerging. In order to succeed, young musicians and professionals should gain a better overview of the whole value chain of the music industry and an inside into different sub-sectors.
2. Objectives - Themes - Priorities
In line with the Preparatory action 2018, the overall aim of this call is to identify and to support at least 10 innovative and sustainable pilot training programmes for young musicians and professionals in the music sector with a clear European added-value. The objective is to test small-scale models with a European dimension on how to improve the sector's capacity and to contribute to its professionalization. In this respect, the focus lies on business-related skills (e.g. digital, management, economical skills) and not on the artistic-related skills. Lessons learnt from these pilot training projects should improve the sector's understanding on the questions of professionalization. These findings should feed into an integrated strategy for music support for the next generation of EU funding programmes after 2020, which could support European diversity and talent, the competitiveness of the sector as well as increased access of citizens to music in all its diversity.
The proposals should demonstrate their contribution to the general objective by covering at least two of the following specific objectives:
1. Address the professional development needs to gain individual and organisational professional expertise, e.g. business-related skills, in order to increase the capacity of the young musicians and music professionals to succeed in the music market;
2. Help young artists and other professionals in the music sector to get a better understanding of the value chain of the music industry, e.g. to get an insight into different sub-sectors, especially where potential for mutual learning or exchange of best practice would be beneficial;
3. Promote transnational exchange or transnational approaches to ensure knowledge transfer, also in terms of its relevance to European/international careers or to European cross-border music initiatives;
4. Fostering sustainable co-operations and creation of networks.
2.2. EXPECTED RESULTS
