The Belgrade Festival Center - CEBEF, as one of the partners of the international project #synergy, from November 22 to November 26, will host several project activities at various locations in Belgrade, Serbia.

The public debate on "Classical Music and Cultural Policy" will be held on November 23, 2022 at the University of Arts in Belgrade. It will be attended by managers and researchers from all festivals involved in the project (KotorArt, Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Chopin Piano Fest, Vox Baroque, Festival Ljubljana), as well by the prominent Serbian experts from the field of cultural policy and management, while the public is invited to actively participate in the discussions. 

This public debate will analyze and discuss various segments of the classical music industry in relation to the existing cultural needs of the public and young people, and to what extent the cultural offer meets these needs. The audience will have the opportunity to better understand the economic, cultural, and political conditions and impact of artistic production, as well as the opportunity to discuss different ways of cultural participation and strengthening cultural skills.

The final capacity-building workshop within the #synergy project, "Marketing in Classical Music", will take place on November 24 and will focus on different approaches to communication, results in exploitation, and dissemination in classical music.


The project #synergy: Sharpening the capacities of the classical music industry in the Western Balkans is co-funded by the EU Creative Europe programme and brings together six important festivals from the region: the KotorArt Don Branko’s Music Days (Montenegro), Dubrovnik Summer Festival (Croatia), Belgrade Summer Festival (Serbia), Ljubljana Festival (Slovenia), Vox Baroque Festival (Albania), and the Chopin Piano Fest Prishtina (Kosovo). The project aims to provide new skills and connect cultural professionals, primarily those who work in the music festival and classical music sector, to encourage composers to write new pieces inspired by the local heritage of partner countries, as well as to facilitate networking and collaboration between young musicians, composers, and classical music organizations in the Western Balkans.
