Development Cooperation

The Global Music Centre has carried out development cooperation projects in many Southern African Development Community countries, in Senegal in West Africa, and in Cuba. In 2009, a project dealing comprehensively with the music field as a whole, but focussing on the library and archive sector, was launched in Tadzikistan in cooperation with the Bactria Cultural Centre. Currently the Global Music Centre is doing preparatory work on a project involving the Taghreft Tinariwen organization in Mali and on the next project based in Kirgizstan in Central Asia.

Within the framework of a project, the Global Music Centre can provide its partners with expertise on areas such as culture management, sound reproduction and studio operation, or library and archiving work.
