REMA gains enhanced support by the European Commission!
REMA, the European Early Music Network – which Peter Pontvik for the time being is chairman for – has been granted a multi-year support under the European Commission’s new program Creative Europe.
Consequently REMA is one of the 21 essential networks in Europe having received grants from the European Union, out of 58 organizations that applied for it. “We are delighted that early music heritage is regarded as one of the important forms of expression in Europe and has got its funding doubled” says Peter Pontvik. He adds “it would be very encouraging if we here in Sweden could match such a view of the historical music by increasing the contributions to it”.
Thanks to the EU-support REMA will have the possibility to fulfill some of the projects planned for, like a web radio station för early music a Showcase Festival for young musicians and the prize REMA AWARD.
