Since 2017 the CMA has been providing startup funding for new collaborative projects and initiatives. Participants in the CMA are encouraged to network and develop new ideas with their colleagues - both from their cities and from the other participating cities. In the end of the CMA all participants take part in a network meeting and an "idea camp" in Sofia. They can build small teams, develop new project ideas and apply for funding of up to 5000 euro.
Every year we have an open call for papers on a particular topic related to cultural management. The selected papers are then published in the annual CMA Publication. You can now downloard for free our first publication from 2017 dedicated to the topic "Paths to innovation in culture".
The program of the CMA culminated in an international meeting and a networking fair in Sofia, bringing together all participants from the participating cities as well as local and international guest-speakers. In 2018 the conference and CMA network meeting took place from 27-30 September.
