The EAS announces an open call for applications to host an “EAS Regional Event” in 2022. 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 a legal institution or association.
- The event should last minimum 2 days and take place in 2022.
- One of the event languages is English, so there is at least one whole strand which is accessible to music educators all over Europe (there may be more strands in other languages).
- We expect a high quality content related to the main focus of EAS: ‘Music in Schools’ and in relation to the EAS Mission Statement
- The target group of the event could be: music teachers, music teacher trainers, students, schools, researchers, policy makers,
- 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“
- support in programming
- international recognition of the event and hosting institution
- announcement & advertising on EAS website & EAS social media
- financial support (600 € per event, in total up to two events can be funded)
