Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

Good vibrations for body and mind come from music written by women.
Women have always created music helping others to express themselves and connect to the world; now their original interactive programme introduces New Music to the mentally sick, often segregated or isolated.

Where will your idea take place?

italy, Sweden

Why does Europe need your idea?

Creative musical activity and its complex relation to society are poorly recognized by cultural policy. Promoting the mobility of European performers and composers contributes to their artistic development and is essential for the circulation of their ideas and works across linguistic and national borders, giving all wider access to cultural diversity. Circulation of new music offers new perspectives, challenging the individual and collective mind to understand and live in complexity with access to a different musical landscape. By taking and presenting new music to the mentally sick we are passing on a very clear message: this music is wonderful, a part of life and good vibrations for body and mind come from that composed by women.

What is your impact?

1. Present and teach an energetic format to Swedish “Clubhouses and members” and Women in Music Organisations
2. Quantify and qualify the differences in the “club members” and their reactions to the music and composers at the end of the first year.
3. Receive requests from other centres outside the Swedish Clubhouse network and requests for participation from composers and performers across EU.
4. Receive attention from press and media so that the general public understands that good vibrations for body and mind also come from music written by women
5. Have beneficiaries asking for more, more and more music telling us how this makes them feel better
6. Repeat final concert in another European country or in Bruxelles to promote our message

How do you get there?

1. Start-up in Sweden with Women in Music organisations and “Club houses” to confirm venues, dates, roles.
2. Creation programme (music, new works, performers, composers, contracts) and organisation travel and hospitality.
3. Creation website space and social media activities with “Club members”.
4. Invite Swedish partners to first concert in Italy.
5. Verification half-way in Sweden by Donne in Musica and Itaca
