The initiative aims to help emerging artists enter the music market, and complements IMiT’s residency programmes.
The programme is addressed to Polish composers, performing artists (instrumentalists, vocalists, conductors) and music ensembles (chamber, vocal, and mixed bands) and offers young artists a professional photo session. Participants have been selected by way of competition. The programme is run by the Institute of Music and Dance in Warsaw and the Polish Composers’ Union, and financed by a subsidy awarded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage for this purpose.
