Sounds Now is a multi-action programme that focuses on new and emerging curators as a sustainable way to promote inclusion in contemporary classical music, experimental music and sound art.

Sounds Now's network of 10 festivals and cultural centres will implement a programme of learning, mentoring, productions, experimentation and research that explores the social and artistic impact of the curator's role in contemporary music. These actions will generate a much-needed discourse on music curating, provide experience to participants in a variety of social and cultural contexts, and diversify the current pool of curators by providing concrete new pathways into the profession for people “on the outside”.

Actions aimed at participants across Europe include coaching and co-working labs with established international music curators, the testing of innovative curating formats, the creation of new works and networks, a formal learning course and research.
