MusIc Network Supporting Trans-national exchange and dissemination of music Resources at European Level
The Portuguese Music Research & Information Centre and the Miso Music Portugal became partners in the MINSTREL project, developed with the support of the Culture 2007-2013 Programme of the European Commission, with the participation of 12 music organizations from 11 European countries: Greece (leader), Slovakia, Poland, Austria, Cyprus, Belgium, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Portugal, Croatia and Latvia.
The mission of the MINSTREL project is the promotion of musical diversity at European level in the frame of the related UNESCO convention. Its main objective is to create the necessary conditions for the circulation of European music and encourage the transnational mobility of musicians (composers, performers, ensembles and professionals), through the cooperation of important European music organizations.
The MINSTREL is a valuable opportunity to increase the visibility of Portuguese music creation beyond boarders, in order to fulfil one of the fundamental objectives of thePortuguese Music Research & Information Centre and the Miso Music Portugal.
