This call is designed to identify and support approximately 8 innovative approaches to foster informal music education and learning, involving the education sector cooperating with the music sector. The objective is to test small-scale projects with a European dimension that can demonstrate good practice.
Project activities should be targeting school-ages children (6-14 yrs) and can include activities such as; organisation of common learning tools such as workshops, summer schools or Camps; use of audio-visual or digital tools; participation at a musical activity in the framework of a community project, a show, a parade or a festival.
They are looking for projects that contribute to fostering social inclusion. Social inclusion in this context will mean providing the necessary support to all learners according to their particular needs, including those from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds, those from a migrant background or those with special needs. The purpose of this call is not to use music as a means to achieve social inclusion, but rather to attract less advantaged children to the world of music.
There is a maximum grant available per project up to €30k. They will fund up to 80% of project costs. Projects must begin by November 2020 and last a maximum of 15 months.
