Benefits for the host

  • Share and learn: The person you are hosting will bring with them a lot of new ideas about project and office management that might help the further development of your own music organisation.
  • Your guest's home organisation may have a similar agenda. Why not join forces to create a joint action?
  • You are developing a cooperation project and looking for partners? Maybe your guest can connect you to some organisations you don't know very well.
  • Your guest might have different contacts on the political and cultural level, which may be useful to you.
  • Play the solidary card: Some music organisations are in a much less fortunate situation than your organisation. Hosting a colleague from another music organisation in your office may benefit the organisation a lot, and help create links and visibility.
  • During the placement, you will have two more working hands in the office: Your guest will be a real help for small administrative tasks.
