Foundation presented the "Soul Filler Program"; the acclaimed Snétberger Foundation introduced itself and their method and Christian Gathe and Lars Tingelstad from Dissimilis Center of Performing Arts Norway enabled to broaden one's your knowledge in this field.

29 November, 9.30am - 1pm

The STAMP programme has been running for two years. A series of webinars and some training activities have been implemented successfully and tools for further training have been developed.
All the STAMP partners were proud to present their results and tips on how to organise training, workshops, webinars on your own. It was a great opportunity to get inspired and to learn from other professionals aiming at improving the music field. You will find all these guidelines, tools and courses online here.

Budapest, 29 November 2018, 1pm - 6pm

Looking back at a series of successful previous capacity building workshops, the EMC was glad to organise a training opportunity in Budapest on 29 November 2018. The workshop aimed at giving an insight on how to organise your work with partners, members and staff thanks to online tools.

We had a detailed look on office management tools such as ZoomAsana or Basecamp. What are the advantages or disadvantages?

► What are the solutions if your office staff members are not working in one place or your board members and you would like to better organise their work and input?

► Which office management tool helps in which situation?

► Where are the obstacles of working with such tools and what should you be aware of when using them?

► Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any enquiries on what was discussed.
