The EAS announces an open call for applications to host an “EAS Regional Event” in 2021. The EAS wants to support events connected to ‘Music in Schools’ in different European regions, which aim to reach out to a broader European community of music educators. Also online-events can be considered!

The criteria for events to be considered:

  • The event is organized by an institution or association.
  • The event should last minimum 2 days and take place in 2021.

  • The target group of the event could be: music teachers, music teacher trainers, students, schools, researchers
  • The EAS National Coordinator of the country needs to be involved. 

EAS is offering for the selected regional events:

  • official status of „EAS Regional Event

  • international recognition of the event and hosting institution
  • announcement & advertising on EAS website & EAS social media
  • participation of one representative (EAS board member)
  • EAS financially supports the event (eg. paying for a presenter / workshop leader)
