MUSA – European young MUsicians soft Skills Alliance
MUSA – European young MUsicians soft Skills Alliance is a European project of professional training dedicated to young string quartets. It aims at providing them with knowledge, skills and competences of entrepreneurship which are absent in their general curriculum, although fundamental for their professional career.
MUSA is aimed at young professional string quartets composed by musicians between 20 and 35 years old, who work together and focus on the classical chamber music repertoire. MUSA is co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union as Strategic Partnership to support innovation (Key Action 2).
GLOBAL GOALS JAM
The Global Goals Jam is an international event organised by the Digital Society School of Amsterdam, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme.
It will take place at the same time throughout the world during the month of September. Since the first edition in 2016, the event has involved 36 countries, 80 cities and around 2500 Jammers, making it an authentically circular international exchange.
Since 2018, IED – Istituto Europeo di Design has been Italy’s Local Organizer for the GGJ, interpreting it with its own specific methodological approach: a process of integration of the SDGs and their interconnections for the development of a project concept able to propose local solutions to the global challenges launched by Agenda 2030. This represents an opportunity for IED students – and more generally, for all participants – to share a cross-cultural experimentation arena and to play an active part in a process of methodological and project research for sustainable development.
