Context/Overview

Recognizing the potential of the music sector as a growth sector, Morocco is interested in developing policies, measures and programmes that would support the development of the music sector. The overall goal of the project is therefore to strengthen the music sector as a source of integration, employment and income, particularly for young people. Particular attention will be given to girls and young women musicians and professionals to promote gender equality. Among the planned activities: development of a national strategy, support for the professionalization of music education, implementation of pilot projects for artist residencies, actions in favor of digital distribution.

Inception phase

An  inception phase will involve consultation with key partners in order to ensure that the project’s goals and architecture are in line with local needs and priorities and adapt it accordingly. A coordination group involving key stakeholders will be established in this phase and will continue to meet throughout the project’s implementation. During this phase, an online questionnaire will be launched to assess the situation of the music sector in Morocco: production, education, programming, infrastructure, financing, distribution, gender equality, etc. This questionnaire will be used in particular to identify priory actions to reinforce the strength of the music sector in Morocco.

Results

The project objective is to reinforce systems of governance for the music sector by strengthening human and institutional capacities, cultural infrastructure, as well as regulatory and policy frameworks in Morocco.

Quality training opportunities and enhanced work in music education for young musicians and music professionals

This will include consultation and research (analysis and recommendations to upgrade the music education framework), technical assistance (such as the revision of the INSMAC curriculum) and strategic projects (musicians’ residencies in 20 urban and rural schools).

Enhanced capacity of musicians and music professionals to increase their income through new policies and measures to support the music sector, especially in the digital context

This will include consultation and research (mapping of needs), technical assistance (policy recommendations) and strategic projects (on digital music distribution).

Enhanced capacity of government and civil society to engage in participatory policymaking, and increased awareness about the music sector as an employment opportunity

This will include consultation and research (identification of policy priorities) and capacity-building and awareness-raising activities (workshops, meetings, campaigns).
