From the 4th to 8th September, Live DMA was organizing together with the European Music Council and the Latvian National Music Council the second key activity of the ERASMUS+ project STAMP (Shared Training Activities for Music Professionals) in Cesis, Latvia. The workshop was all about international cooperation & networking. We had the chance to be in a pleasant working environment, to host excellent speakers and to work with highly motivated participants.

Live DMA directly contributed with two expert interventions: Our coordinator Audrey introduced the importance of data collection as a powerful tool in international cooperation projects. Live DMA’s co-president Isabelle von Walterskirchen presented Petzi’s activities and success story in order to give an example of a multilayer cooperation project.

Inspired by the techniques and methods of the seminar, Live DMA is now working on the construction of a perennial methodology for setting up cooperation and network structures in countries that might be interested in developing the structuration of the music sector.

Live DMA was at this year’s edition of Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg (DE) and participated at two panels in order to present the Live Style Europe project and to expose the European Agenda for Music. Reeperbahn was again an excellent opportunity to meet our European partners and brainstorm about the future programme dedicated to the music sector, Music Moves Europe.

Live Style Europe is a European cooperation project to empower live music professionals, improve the sector's overall conditions, promote its values and create connections all over Europe. Live Style Europe is supported by the European Commission via the Creative Europe program.

Live DMA organizes a LSE working group from the 8th to the 10th of November 2017 besides the Stadt nach Acht event in Berlin.

The working group will be dedicated to the topic “The value of music venues to local authorities”. Venues directors, programmers and chair(wo)men from Live DM’s members organizations will come together and discuss issues like the impact of urban development and gentrification on music venues, neighborhood relations, improving relations between venues and local policy makers, etc. Participants are encouraged to share best practices with each other and to seek further inatspiration from other experts present at the Stadt nach Acht event. Live DMA also partnered up with LIKE - European cities and regions for culture who hold their General Assembly at the same time in Berlin.
