What are the challenges we face in enhancing and transforming the world of classical music concerts?

How do we integrate the online experience into a world where live events may soon become possible again?

How do we bring fresh new perspectives to live concert occasions?

A new multidisciplinary international educational and development programme is aiming to help young arts professionals answer some of these questions. Music.Multimedia.Management is a training programme developed by the Szczecin Philharmonic and running throughout the 2021/22 season. Szczecin is Poland's seventh largest city, which is located near the Baltic Sea and the German border, and the city is known in Swedish and German as Stettin.

Aimed at young musicians, artists, aspiring culture managers and arts professionals, the programme is designed to help them in acquiring new skills, to equip them to pursue professional job opportunities, to broaden the idea of interdisciplinary arts, to promote effective use of new technologies and to grow audiences and enhance international collaboration in the arts sector.   

The initial on-line tuition is free, followed by a subsidised two week practical training period in Poland or Norway and a two month paid internship in Poland or Norway for selected candidates to develop their practical skills in the creation and production of international arts projects.  Each module in the programme consists of a series of webinars and masterclasses showcasing a wide range of experts, experienced tutors and special guests and will provide participants with useful and relevant historical, geographical and social contexts to each topic.

The starting point for the programme will be the audience experience with a focus on sound design, lighting and visuals, music education, audience development, artist management and creative arts project management. The result will be a greater awareness of the whole creation and production process among aspiring cultural managers and arts professionals of the future, realised through a range of exciting events to be held at the end of the programme, curated by the participants themselves to demonstrate their newly acquired skills and insights.

The programme has been developed by the Szczecin Philharmonic along with Fjord Cadenza, Norway and the TRAFO Centre for Contemporary Art, Szczecin. They will be working alongside the Music.Design.Form Festival, Szczecin; the International Lutoslawski Youth Orchestra; the Fjord Cadenza Festival and three in-house Gallery exhibitions to offer participants the best all-round creative experience possible.

Registration is now open: applications will be considered from 1st April to 5th May 2021.
