On May 22, The European Commission published the new Agenda for Culture: the Creative Europe Programme will start for the period 2021-2027 in a post-Brexit Union. Despite many important changes, much still has to be achieved. Several questions related to the music sector remain open and with the members of ELMA network, MESO Events aims to bring them to the attention of European Parliament.
In this context and following the vote of the European Parliament in favor of Music Moves Europe and stepping on the European Music Day events across Europe (Fête Européenne de la Musique) and the 150th Anniversary of Gioacchino Rossini, a debate on the need to develop sustainable and innovative European Policies for Music Sector was organized by Silvia Costa, Coordinator of the Group of Socialists and Democrats (S & D) of the Commission for Education and Culture (CULT) and co-sponsored by Patrizia Toia, Head of Delegation for Democracy and European Parliament The S & D Group.
Aside the different European partners of the CULT Commission and other collaborators of the European Commission (DG EAC & DG CONNECT), the encounter turned into an historic meeting between representatives and colleagues of the music day networks from France, Greece and Italy.
