Music and development: High-level donor panel

This session shared views on major challenges for development work in the field of culture from their professional perspective. Timo Klemmentinen lead the discussion while focusing on the two different terms of social change through culture advocacy and operational action.

José Luis Castineira de Dios gave some remarkable thought-provoking impulses about alternative funding of organizations and described, as a role model the financing of the Ibermusica project, which is a cooperation fund for the strengthening of an Ibero-American musical space for the protection of heritage and creation. The project’s fund follows the idea of a non-monetary funding system which is led by a committee linked to every financing participant to which the project needs to give a justification of results in the end.

The presentation of Blakso Smilevski dealt with the issue of sustainable development and economic prosperity through music, which aims at supporting the countries to establish a lasting and integrated music sector in local, regional and national levels unifying private and public sector of society. In order to convince prospective donors of the importance of social change caused by music, he underlined the need of careful project’s evaluation to gain striking results.
