Music Moves Europe Dialogue:
The MME initiative, facilitated by a consortium of well-established music event organizations, includes 10 dialogue sessions and two conferences. The focus of the first conference is on addressing challenges, needs, and opportunities in the European music ecosystem. Discussions will center on how the European Union and its members can provide support through policy, regulations, funding, and dialogue facilitation.
Stay tuned for updates as the European music sector engages in constructive discussions with EU policymakers to navigate its future landscape. Fair MusE , represented by its Coordinator, will present its preliminary results and will actively participate in this important conversation as a member of the Horizon Europe music project cluster.
