The #synergy project is co-funded by the EU programme Creative Europe to strengthen the cultural cooperation and competitiveness of the cultural and creative industries in the Western Balkans. Its aim is to increase the capacity of the classical music industry in the Western Balkans to operate transnationally and internationally by creating opportunities for cultural professionals, composers, and emerging performers to develop new skills and gain professional experience and expertise.
