The Safe Project: Education in Practice
Chair: Victoria Matthews, EEA (FR)
A network of bodies from within the European live music sector are currently collaborating on an Erasmus+ funded project to improve safety and security training on the continent. The SAFE Project is a dual training course for professional managers and production professionals that teaches how identify and react to threats and vulnerabilities that lead to crises, thereby learning to plan, prepare and respond to identified scenarios and risks. Principals involved in the new course outline the new methods adopted and why the training should be on the agenda of all venues, promoters and festival operators.
