The Municipality of Debrecen previously requested Debrecen Campus Nonprofit Ltd. to develop a concept for the support of active music life in Debrecen, the outcome will soon be decided.
According to the concept, the city is proposing to launch a HUF 6 million Music Support Program in 2020.
The money would provide support for amateur, talented musicians to record sound, shoot video, rent a rehearsal room, purchase equipment, hold concerts and attend training.
In addition, they would set up a support point to advise and mentor young musicians as well as assist them with grant applications, build international relationships and participation at different festivals. Marketing and copyright, legal training and providing opportunities for up-and-coming bands at city festivals will also be part of the role.
The music coordinator would also play an important role in coordinating the Street Music Festival in the summer of 2020.
The concept has long-term goals for the post-2020 period including:
- development of potential concert venues;
- design and provision of rehearsal rooms of appropriate quality;
- Creating spaces that provide a well-equipped music room for schools;
- launching several music-related training courses in addition to music education at the University of Debrecen.
