MMINO CALL FOR APPLICATIONS (article first published : 2008-05-19)

MMINO, the South African-Norwegian music cooperation, invites projects within the field of music education and - exchange to apply for funding. Housed at the National Arts Council in Johannesburg, the South African –Norwegian Music Cooperation has announced that Mmino will continue for the period 2008 to 2010.

An agreement regarding cultural cooperation between South Africa and Norway was signed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Arts Council of South Africa in April 2008. The Department of Arts and Culture has become a partner and will from now on also financially contribute to Mmino.

The call is for applications for funding for projects active in the field of music education or music exchange (with Norway or the SADC region). Only projects within the fields of music education such as community outreach projects, workshops and tuition and music exchange between South African and Norway or South Africa and the SADC countries will be considered.

All applications must be submitted before June 20 at 12h00 on the official Mmino form which can be downloaded from www.mmino.org.za or will be posted on telephonic request at 011 838 1383. Mmino will not accept faxed, emailed, incomplete or late applications. Only one funding session will take place in 2008.

Since its inception in 2000, Mmino has been the only funding organization that solely funds music projects and this led automatically to high expectations from the music community. Mmino-funded projects range from music workshops for juvenile prisoners, teaching of crafting indigenous instruments to youngsters, preservation of Ndebele music history, South African Hip Hop at the Norwegian Afrikan History Week to the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra.

For more information, contact the Mmino office on 011 838 1383 or visit www.mmino.org.za
