Look out for Funding

If you don't know how to finance your participation at WOMEX 14 - keep your eyes open for funding possibilities!

Every year a number of organisations offer funding directly for WOMEX or for cultural events and trade fairs in general. So it's really worth checking if there's anything on offer in your country.


These are just two examples:

WOMEX Bursaries 2014
Arts Council of Northern Ireland

WOMEX 14 Santiago Bursaries
Cerdd Cymru Music Wales


If you come across further funding possibilities, do let us know and spread the word! (Photo: Eric van Nieuwland) More...

INTERNATIONAL MUSIC DAY

Fête de la Musique

INTERNATIONAL MUSIC DAY - Fête de la Musique Happy mid summer and have a great Music Day around the globe.

"Completely different from a music festival, the Fête de la Musique is above all a free popular fête, open to any participant (amateur or professional musicians) who wants to perform in it. This Music day allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere. It aims at a large audience, working to popularise musical practice for young and not so young people from all social backgrounds. It gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music."
(French Fête de la Musique, official website)

We hope many of you are also actively taking part (as are our CEO, Director and Showcase team).
