ECMA PRO – international career development and socially engaged outreach in chamber music.
The general aim of the ECMA PRO project is to support young ensembles in the development of their international careers and develop new performance formats. For this purpose, the project involves non-educational partners such as music festivals and concert venues. Furthermore, a long-term goal is to develop and consolidate the function of ECMA as an interlocutor between institutions, ensembles and concert venues.

Fakta om prosjektet
The overall aims and objectives of the project are the following:
1. To enhance transnational mobility of artists within the area of chamber music by testing and organising show cases
that will support young ensembles with their international career development
2. To strengthen the social relevance and to raise consciousness of the social responsibility of artists as individuals, and
to deepen the relationship between musicians and their audience by addressing issues regarding audience development
in both traditional and non-traditional performance venues in the area of chamber music
3. To foster capacity building in the area of chamber music with regards to career skills training, education and training,
audience development and societal outreach
4. To enhance digitisation and encourage students and teachers to use new technologies by developing an online learning platform for career skills training, a digital switchboard to facilitate contacts between concert operators and chamber music ensembles, and a bank of exercises of educational materials for chamber music education.
Many of the project activities will take place during existing ECMA sessions that are being organised in various institutions in different European countries on an annual basis. These ECMA sessions will be enhanced through the ECMA PRO activities addressing international career development, career skills training and audience development
activities. In total 18 of such ‘enhanced ECMA sessions' will take place over the course of the project.
