WGY Activities 2008 - 2013

Activities 2010-2011 & Access! project

The aim of the Access! project, which ran from 2010-2011, was to give young people in Europe who are involved in music a voice in their future. Musicians, managers, musicologists and pedagogues starting out on their career have an important role to play in the shaping of the European music sector but are often sidelined and do not have access to the information and help they need. The Access! project aimed to address this, and led to the development of the Manifesto for Youth and Music in Europe.
