Cultural Diplomacy and International Events
The opportunity exists to create a programme to educate professionals who intend to become involved in international diplomatic relations which function using the soft power of music. These individuals may be involved in planning and co-ordinating the staging of international live events (international music festivals, opening ceremonies for international sports events), recording or broadcast of international music projects (War Child charity, Eurovision Song Contest) or managing long-running cross-border/cross-cultural initiatives (Nerve Centre in Derry, British Council music events). These projects often work across boundaries where trade and political diplomacy have failed, hence retaining communication channels and inter-cultural connections. The emerging professional requires not just an understanding of music and diplomacy but also entrepreneurship, the global music industries, social media communication and distribution platforms, project management, negotiation skills, language skills and team management abilities. In addition to this they may find themselves working with local and national governments.
