Content: The Arctic Music Circles project aims to engender new forms of music collaboration, visibility and branding as well as and lasting structures for the needs of Arctic music sector. The core of the project is in rotative working methods to establish genuine, in-depth collaboration between the project partners and stakeholders in the field of music in Interreg Aurora program area to develop the regions creative industries together in an enduring network of music producers and organizers.

The project concentrates largely in co-creating together. One of the goals is to construct a three-level tour and concert support model, which adds more support in the first year of collaboration and reduces thus the risk in testing new ideas. We lead the artists, producers and organizers to a dialogue and facilitate new forms of artistic processes and productional collaboration with training opportunities, curated music programs and selected tour and concert experiences. To weave the story of Arctic music in one fabric, we cultivate the brand of Arctic Pulse further and establish a shared marketing concept for Northern music, under which all project activities are communicated.

As a project outcome, Arctic Music Circles presents a permanent framework for music collaboration in the Arctic European area.
