Footprints :
2020 - 2024

Footprints is a 4-year programme to support young European artists and agents in order to improve the skills and know-how of new professionals in the music sector. Focusing on the social, ecological and economic aspects of artistic careers, Footprints aims at facilitating the circulation of artists in Europe.

Footprints will provide two successive training and touring programmes (2021 – 2022 / 2022 – 2023) for artists and agents who will be working together on building the concert tours in Europe with the support and mentorship of FT partners. More generally, each step and each contribution to Footprints will help to develop global ressources to the music sector in order to shape news models in artistic circulation. These resources will be shared and broadcasted among European artistic networks.
