How to do effective advocacy work for Music?

Workshop led by Thomas Dayan and Patrick Ager


In times of financial and political crisis organisers of music activities require strong arguments to secure funding for their projects. At the same time legislation (diverse EU directives) and other practices (e.g. airline policies on luggage) may have concrete implication for musical creation and practice. In this interactive workshop Thomas Dayan from the International Federation of Musicians (FIM) and Patrick Ager from the European Composers’ and Songwriters Alliance (ECSA) will give guidance on how to develop successful advocacy strategies based on their own practical examples.
