This activity was led by the Cyprus Centre for Research and Study of Music.
YEMP (Young Event Management Programme) is an existing training scheme for young managers in the choral world. A group of young managers are selected to attend a major festival a week before it starts for a weekend of “theoretical” training. They are then placed in different departments of the festival, with responsibility, and do “on the job training”. They have “coaches” who visit and advise them and to whom they turn in case of difficulties or questions.
YEMP was adapted for STAMP as a model training scheme in festival/event management. The goal was to see how YEMP can be adapted to other sectors and ultimately allow others to develop their own YEMP trainings beyond the duration of the project and beyond the project partners.

In early October 2017 Croatian and international music professionals came together to hear about new research in audience development and share their best practices. Drawing on these exchanges an online handbook was developed in 2018 to provide you with innovative audience-building techniques.

Handbook on Social Inclusion for Disadvantaged Youth:
Music is an extraordinary medium for community-building and social inclusion through the development of new skills and experiences, and a small number of initiatives today apply this rational to working with at-risk youth. STAMP develop an online handbook that train you to apply music to various situations. Also we have gathered information on different music projects and further reading material for your inspiration

International Networking and Cooperation:
Based on the workshop “Start your Cooperation Project” an Online Course was developed to provide training for staff of music organisations to develop their international cooperation ideas. It tackles important questions on funding opportunities, intercultural competences and communication in the frame of international cooperation projects. The course focuses on developing skills in working with other regions and nations, and improving networking as a tool for increasing a sense of initiative and entrepreneurship.
