A Wazo Coop project co-funded by MusicAIRE in the framework of the Creative Europe action Music Moves Europe.
Music sector faces many difficulties in being sustainable after COVID-19 pandemics and Music4Coop fosters social innovation by creating more resilient new cooperative professional roles based in Social and Solidarity Economy in music which directly contributes to sustainable development.
The innovation lies in the approach to sustainability of the music sector through Cooperation and Social and Solidarity Economy:
Economic sustainability: balancing economic growth with equal distribution of revenues
Organisational sustainability: promoting enterprise development and workers development
Social sustainability: cooperating for participation and community/territory engagement
Music Sustainability: building relationships with audiences, ensuring their participation but also increasing access to culture through diverse tools).
In the short term, a set of music professionals will be immediately able to advance rights at work, improve the quality of their jobs, and ensure access to social protection. In the medium term, the role of the music sector as driver of local and regional development will be endorsed by cooperative practices equally beneficial for the music sector and communities. In the long term European music cooperators will play a critical role in economic growth and innovation at local level fostering sustainable jobs in music and societal harmony.
Music4Coop will build new channels for cooperation between European music cooperators and Community-level stakeholders in several territories around Europe.
