European Music Day Association partners (NPO MESO Events for Greece) attend European Meeting of Music Day / Fête de la Musique organisers in Palermo, in a significant opportunity to collaborate with other european networks.
The Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, the City of Palermo and AIPFM, Italian Association for the Promotion of the Festa della Musica, organize a European Meeting of the Music Day / Fete de la Musique organizers in the framework of the “Laboratory of dialogue between Cultures” organized in Palermo, European Capital of Culture 2018.
The meeting will focus on exchanges that could allow us to recreate an operational network of artistic collaboration for the Music Day /Fête de la Musique events, ensuring its founding principles, namely the free events, the use of public and cultural spaces of the cities, the participation of all musicians, they are amateurs or professionals, the valorization of the local artistic resources thanks to the mobilization of schools, conservatories, musical associations, promoters and event managers, remaining an event open to all musical types of events and music genres.
As a first step, a first meeting to present each organization will be held on Friday 9 March, after the instutional welcome, as it seems important to get a general overview of the Music Day / Fête de la Musique in respective countries, namely the conditions in which it takes place, the national and local institutions who possibly intervene in organization and financing, the dimensions which it occupies within each country, the communication means and supports, the intentions of each one in terms of national development of the event, and finally your expectations in terms of international collaboration.
