This is an invitation for all educators who want to develop their educational skills for self-employment and entrepreneurial careers to participate in European Creative Futures’ seminar: Education for Music Entrepreneurship.

The seminar is hosted by the Norwegian Academy of Music / CEMPE – Centre of Excellence in Music Performance Education, Oslo, and will be held on the 25th – 26th of January 2018.

Key educators and professionals from Europe and USA come to the Norwegian Academy of Music to discuss and identify how to solve the mismatch between training in higher music education and demands from the labour market. How can musical entrepreneurship be implemented as an experiential learning practice in the curricula?
