The WOMEX Showcase, Conference and Film programme

Womex15

Womex15

Whether a prominent talking head or a keen observer with a raft of experience, WOMEX is seeking proposals from representatives across the musical spectrum who wish to present their vision, map out an idea or lay the foundation for moving the industry forward.

We welcome all kinds of conference topics: from basics to backgrounds, from live to recorded, and from roots to visions. The Conference is held in English.

For WOMEX 15 we would like to encourage proposals from four areas that we think would make fitting highlights/focal points of WOMEX in Budapest:

Sessions which examine Hungary’s rich musical traditions and its current developments.
Sessions that take a look at the Eastern European music market, either in general or addressing specific aspects of it.
Sessions which deal with synergies, exchanges and blends of traditional music (world music, folk roots) on the one hand and styles such as club music and jazz on the other.
Hands-on know-how on the use of digital media and tools for world music professionals.

Here’s how to submit…

Step 1: Complete the application form

Step 2: Upload one photo (300 dpi)

Drawing on 20 years of conference experience we have some recommendations for your session proposal:

Think of how you create interactivity amongst all participants – leave time for questions in the 45 minutes you’ve got!
Do not include more than three speakers.
Focus on transporting/creating hands-on knowledge for all participants to take home from your session.
Select a specific topic, rather than something general.

New Proposal System in 2015!

Based on delegate feedback, we have developed a new method of submitting proposals for WOMEX 15. We use a tailor-made proposal system developed in collaboration with the independent company Brumedje, who are happily located in the islands of Cabo Verde.
