GLOBAL MUSIC MATCH 2021 – CALL FOR IRISH ARTISTS
Culture Ireland invites artists to apply for Global Music Match 2021, a transnational showcase and networking opportunity for Irish musicians working in the acoustic, folk, roots, traditional or world music genres.
Culture Ireland is offering support for artists to engage in this 16 week Global Music Match as it will serve to raise the profile of artists in international music markets during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
In particular Culture Ireland’s focus in collaborating with Global Music Match is to enable export ready artists to:
- advance global opportunities and networks
- create new audiences for artists in a range of international locations
- lay the groundwork for future international touring development
Applications are now open for artists interested in taking part in the second edition of Global Music Match 2021, a 16-week, artist driven initiative, designed to establish real life connections between export-ready artists.
Through these introductions artists will enhance their social media skill sets, interact with new audiences, create new and engaging content and have the opportunity to work together to create musical collaborations on a global scale.
Global Music Match was established in 2020, a collaboration created by founding partners Sounds Australia, Showcase Scotland Expo and East Coast Music Association (ECMA), along with export organisations and showcase events from around the world.
