 MUSICPRENEUR

From self-production to self-dissemination, the musician tends to become the main leader of his professional project and the main contributor of its realization thanks to the transition to digital technology and the generalized rise in power of the figure of the self-entrepreneur.

  • The health and economic crisis linked to COVID-19 is challenging the cultural and creative sector with the consequence of a stopping all professional activity; a stop felt by artists as a trauma more strongly than professionals in other sectors, because the extreme specialization of artistic techniques acquired after long years of training and rehearsal separate most of them from classical careers likely to facilitate their vocational retraining after such a health and economic shock;
  • Resilience is needed to rebuild an artistic practice that is psychologically over-invested and to convert this “misfortune” into a formidable energy to create again. It is not a new life to be considered, but to continue one’s own by changing the trajectory and sometimes even reaching excellence.
  • De l’autoproduction à l’auto diffusion, le musicien tend à devenir le porteur autonome de son projet professionnel et le principal agent de sa réalisation grâce au passage au
    numérique et la montée en puissance généralisée de la figure de l’autoentrepreneur.

This is why the “Musicpreneur” project wishes to provide answers that allow musicians and cultural operators, the project’s target audience, supported by exceptional measures, to find their way back to cultural entrepreneurship, a space for resilience, transformation of practices and creative imaginations for a better tomorrow, by accompanying them in the development of their power and know-how.

The idea is to enable them to “bounce back” in a context which, for the most part, challenges them, makes them precarious, traumatizes them and gives them the feeling of having lost their “power to act” and to develop in this context a new understanding of their practice in order to surpass themselves and regain their “ability to act”.

However, an individual is more or less resilient, and in order to “be able to act” must know “how to act” according to his or her own capacities to mobilize and effectively combine a variety of internal and external resources within a given situation in order to organize, adapt, empower, socialize, communicate, take initiatives and participate.

This is why the project pursues the overall objective of “developing the know-how of musicians and cultural operators in the health and economic context of COVID-19” and plans joint staff training events around two specific objectives (SO):

  • SO 1: Know how to mobilize and combine effectively a variety of internal resources (IR)
  • SO 2: Know how to mobilize and effectively combine a variety of external resources (ER)
