Yolda/En Route - Music and Migration

Organisation of 2 conferences on the theme of migration and music, inspired by the Istanbul-Ghent migration project, which puts together Turkish and Belgian musicians who, after a residency in Turkey, travels from Istanbul to Ghent along the ancient route of the historical Turkish migration to Belgium.

The conference is open to EJN members and non-member professionals. The speakers are the organizers of the above project, who talk about history of migration, its influences on different cultural scenes, the mobility of artists and their direct contacts with the local communities.  

Each conference include a 1-day workshop held by the organizers and musicians involved in the project, aimed at providing the practical information about the organization of such a tour, information on how to plan a report activity about the tour - both on-the-spot and online reports, how to create a forum, how to interact with the artists during their  travel through social media, how to produce a documentary.
