Culture Ireland At Classical: NEXT (May 2017)

Culture Ireland is inviting applications to join the Irish delegation at Classical: NEXT taking place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands from 17 to 20 May 2017.

Classical:NEXT is an international Showcase and industry conference aimed at the classical and contemporary music sector. 

The four-day networking event, marking its 6th edition in 2017, includes an international expo, showcase concerts and a trade event with presentation of projects and services. Further information of the event is available here.

This will be the first time that Culture Ireland has taken a stand at the event and active participation by the sector will be critical in ensuring successful outcomes and possible future involvement by Culture Ireland.

Culture Ireland is offering a limited number of delegate bursaries aimed at those artists, managers, members of resource organisations and companies who have a track record of achievement in the classical and contemporary music sector, touring internationally, have excellent promotional material available and who would benefit from attending the event to promote their work or organisation.

It is a condition of support that delegates attend at the Culture Ireland stand for particular periods, based on a schedule agreed in advance.

The award (€750 per delegate) is towards the costs of return flights, registration and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence.

Only one delegate bursary will be awarded per organisation.

Applicants should apply online to Culture Ireland. Click here to apply.


The deadline for submission of completed applications for a delegate bursary is Friday 24th February 2017 to ensure inclusion in the Classical: NEXT Guide. Successful applicants will be notified during the week of 27th February 2017.
