With this programme of grants, Sabam for Culture wants to introduce foreign markets to the Belgian music repertoire. Sabam wants to help its members establish contacts abroad and get opportunities to perform.
Sabam for Culture also welcomes its cooperation with KUNSTENPUNT and WALLONIE BRUXELLES MUSIQUE. These partners have been active abroad for many years in order to promote the export of the Belgian repertoire. Together, new events are organised every year (e.g. Belgium Booms) to make foreign countries better acquainted with the Belgian music scene.
