News from Brussels - November 2014

European Composer and Songwriter Alliance - ECSA

Symposium "In need of key changes! Music for tomorrow"

5 November 2014, Brussels

The event sparked a lively discussion on the status of European music creators. It was hosted under the patronage of the Regione Lazio and was co-organized with ECSA's partner, the Fondazione Adkins Chiti: Donne in Musica (FACDIM).

The conference offered a platform for a direct exchange of views with key policy makers in the field of culture. The morning session was opened by a presentation of a video introducing composers' views on the key themes for the day: recognition of the role of composers, fair remuneration and fair contracts, discrimination, lack of equal opportunities and transparency in decision making processes.

Key speakers included: MEP Silvia Costa, MEP Sabine Verheyen, MEP Eva Kaili and Jens Nymand-Christensen, Deputy Director at DG EAC. Speakers were invited to make specific suggestions to amend and complement a joint ECSA-FACDIM recommendation that will be disseminated to EU institutions in the next few weeks.
