€4.5m EU Scheme Seeking Proposals to Develop New Live Music Fund
Music Moves Europe, a scheme launched by the EU to support the European music sector, is currently seeking proposals for a €4.5m funding project.
The EU call is seeking ‘a consortium of at least two applicants from two eligible countries’ to propose and run a grant scheme that would redistribute funding to the live music sector in the EU, in particular to support live-streaming, music venue cooperation and music exports.
Organisations interested in applying should be in existence for at least two years and have experience in projects of a comparable size. The proposed funding scheme would take place over three years.
The organisations would not only administer a funding scheme for the music sector but also run a programme of capacity-building activities such as workshops, tutorials, and exchange activities between music professionals.
At least 80% of the €4.5m would be redistributed via the project, leaving up to €900k for administration costs. The funding scheme would have an annual call for applications with at least 60 grant recipients over three years. The maximum amount per grant would be €60k.
The call for proposals opened on 15 September and the deadline for submissions is 12 January 2023.
Music Moves Europe is part of the EU’s Creative Europe programme, which supports the cultural and creative sectors.
