UTOM (Young minds for music)
With the support of Signatur Foundation Sweden, the Young Minds for Music network is implementing the project “How does the music life of the future sound?”, a cultural political project in Malmö consisting of several parallel tracks with various collaborative partners under the common theme “music life of the future”. The project includes seminars on vocational preparation for students at Malmö Academy of Music, workshops including UTOM members and El Sistema ensembles in primary schools, a concert at Palladium in collaboration with Musik i Syd and a collaboration with Rytmus Music High School with a focus on bringing young people together with those in positions of authority in cultural life.
Young Minds for Music (UTOM) is a stand-alone and independent network that makes use of the richness of ideas, potential and voices that young professionals in the music community possess.
UTOM consists of young and prominent music professionals who have realised that the responsibility for music in our society one day will rest on their shoulders. UTOM’s core aim is to encourage young music professionals from all genres to meet, develop and work together for an inclusive, challenging, tolerant and daring cultural climate in the future. The members are aged between 25 and 40 years and are elected on a four year mandate.
NEW EXCITING ROADS
”Private funders who, in an altruistic way, create opportunities for music life to develop and find new interesting and exciting paths are a rare commodity in Sweden. Therefore, Signatur Foundation Sweden is a fantastic addition and a force with great potential, alongside music’s various stakeholders, to really make a difference.”
Max Låke, Executive Director, UTOM
