The East African Creative Music Campus enables talented young musicians to acquire the necessary skills to perform, read, write, document and transmit their own music cultures.
This will empower them to engage in local and interregional markets and contribute to the development of a diverse and dynamic music sector.
The East African Creative Music Campus (EACMC) co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and the Goethe-Institut is the follow-up project to the East African Global Music Campus in 2017/18.
The Covid 19 pandemic had a massive impact on the Project and on the participating organizations. After the second activity was completed (Business Development Workshop in Dar es Salaam Feb. 2020), the grant was paused because all the partner countries went into lock-down.
Because of the massive impact that Covid 19 the Global Music e.V. applied for and won a digitalisation grant under the Neustart Kultur programme set up by the Culture Foundation of the Federal States of Germany (Kulturstiftung die Länder) in response to the Covid 19 pandemic.
23 participants, business mentors and trainers from the 6 partners in the consortium plus 8 external participants from the network in Southern Africa.
