Staff exchange programme

After a first and very successful round for of placements aimed at National Music Councils, the EMC is pleased to offer a second round of its staff exchange programme for its members, in which International and European Organisations will have priority. The idea behind the programme is that one music organisation sends an interested staff or Board member to another organisation - if possible in a different country - and/or hosts a staff or Board member from another organisation. This programme offers participants the chance to spend 5 to 10 days learning from each other, sharing experiences, and getting an insight into a foreign (working) culture.
