W7 | Act in Synch “The courage class”
By Europe in Synch (Nis Bøgvad with invited speakers: Jonathan Wise, Cathy Runciman and Ellen Ormesher)

With the ability to connect widely and reach global cultures, what is more obvious than letting The Superpowers of Music and Brands become the centerpiece of driving positive change and have a real impact in the world. We are all creatives and with synchronised talents we can jointly make an impact to shape what the future on our planet looks like.

Join us in a collaborative workshop and find that special something that makes you one of “the courage class”. Bold leadership, transparency and collaborations are key to success. Meet industry professionals sharing exciting initiatives and insights on how music and brands can and have made a difference.

Workshop is run by Europe in Synch, which as a collective is also behind the Act in Synch initiative.

Europe in Synch
In the dynamic world of music licensing, eight project partners from all across the continent came together to form “Europe in Synch” (EinS). The organization aims to connect creatives from the audiovisual industries and arts, particularly by offering expertise in the quickly developing fields of synchronization, music licensing and music supervision. EinS wants to establish new networks and a better understanding of the needs and opportunities of the different industries that work with (licensed) music. EinS is co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.
