The project aims at building capacities to foster the professional adaption of music creators and empowering creators through knowledge. Whilst the training sessions and webinars focus on composers and songwriters on national level, ECSA’s objective is to address the transnational nature of a music creators’ business activity. Issues such as invoicing a company in another EU Member State, obtaining royalties and working on a transnational basis will be one of the key focuses of the Capacity Triangle.
The project will take the form of seminars and webinars and will be divided in three elements:
- Digital skills: in order to get familiarized with digital tools and business models and to unleash the potential of self-publishing via the Composers’ Directory for instance.
- Entrepreneurial skills: because most composers work on an individual basis and few of them have any knowledge on self-employment and social security law when they first step into the world of professional composing and song writing.
- Copyright and publishing skills: in order to ensure that music creators get an opportunity to learn about copyright contracts and publishing rights.
