DEVELOP YOUR CAREER WITH TAK BRZMI MIASTO: INCUBATOR!
Tak Brzmi Miasto (Hear the City) Incubator is the first in Poland free program supporting the music business, created for self-managed musicians and bands as well as the managers, that will take place in five Polish cities: Kraków, Katowice, Łódź, Poznań and Toruń. The goal is to provide you with knowledge, skills and contacts that will help you to function better on the music market.
Under the care of five experienced curators and in the group of selected participants you will get to know topics related to: financial, legal, business, media, productional and artistic aspects of band’s and manager’s work.

For remarkable participants, there will be an intense training course Summer Camp, and all that qualify to the program will be offered individual consultations with music professionals.
1.Music conference and showcase Tak Brzmi Miasto 2018 (November 17-18th, Cracow)
During the conference Tak Brzmi Miasto 2018, we inaugurated Tak Brzmi Miasto: Incubator. We introduced partners and staff as well as the general rules of the recruitment and details of the program.
The culmination of Tak Brzmi Miasto: Incubator will be the next edition of the conference Tak Brzmi Miasto 2019 where the rundown on the project and it’s possible continuation will be presented.
2. Tak Brzmi Miasto Academy (March 2019 – October 2019, Kraków, Katowice, Łódź, Poznań, Toruń)
Tak Brzmi Miasto Academy is a series of workshops and meetings run by music professionals, that will take place in five partnering cities of the project: Kraków, Katowice, Łódź, Poznań, Toruń. The goal is not only to provide you with the newest and tested knowledge about the music market, but also to work regularly on the challenges concerning your career in music.
Every city will hold at least 7 meetings. Every city has it’s own curator, who will “take care” of the participants over the whole program:
Łódź – Leszek Biolik (musician, producer)
Katowice – Paweł Hordejuk (Happysad)
Poznań – Daga Gregorowicz (DagaDana)
Kraków – Agata Trafalska (Kortez)
Toruń – Bartosz Stawiarz (Pink Freud, Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet)
3. Community Meetings
In addition to workshops, there will be ‘community meetings’ organised within the project. That’s when we want to identify the collective goals of participants and plan the strategy to achieve the aims so that the participants could support each other even after finishing the project. During these meetings we will also host different guests from the music business.
4. Summer Camp 2019 (August 2019)
In July/September in Kraków there will be held a ten days camp for outstanding participants of the project from all the cities. Accommodation and food costs will be covered. The camp will hold an intense course developing the themes of Tak Brzmi Miasto Academy and the community meetings.
Additionally, there will be instrumental workshops, jam sessions and concerts.
5. Supporting Artists’ Mobility
Participants of the project will be able to make use from refunds of transportation and accommodation expenses concerning their trips for festivals and gigs outside of their city and country. The refund will apply mainly to shows within partnering events: festivals and noted showcases.
6. Supporting Managers’ Mobility
Artists’ managers (or self-managed artists) can also look to financial support for their trips to music conferences or workshops, where they will broaden their knowledge and improving their skills.
7. On-line Consultations
Throughout the duration of the program, the participants will be able to contact music professionals from all around the world. It will be possible to consult any musical idea or find answers for even the hardest questions.
