This is a placeholder topic for our engagement and collaboration with
on our joint work to build a new, fair way to support ethical independent music tourism
FairBnB.coop and Pavilion, with the support of Tykn, have made a proposal to the use Resonate’s Community Credentials technology to underpin this exciting joint business collaboration and co-operation between two very cool and ethically aligned co-operatives: Resonate and FairBnB.Coop
Above is an extract from the proposal deck, which has passed the initial eligibility check for ‘Business Open Call 2’ of the EU’s Next Generation Internet grant programme run by the ESSIF-Lab. There’s up to €106k available to help us realize the vision of community-powered independent music micro-touring and tourism: a co-operative ‘habitat’ for music.
Massive thanks to Jonathan Reyes, co-founder of FairBnB.coop, for submitting the official proposal and committing to work on this with Pavilion and Resonate. We’ll see how we get on with the bid, but even if we aren’t successful, I think you’ll agree its a compelling idea for our co-operatives to work together and make these collaborations work for folks who care about music, community, place and fair touring / tourism.
We are setting up a project team room for working discussions between the bid partners, but we will use this wiki post to keep you updated with news and information about progress with the bid and the potential project.
We’re keeping this close as an idea for now, not officially announced or anything, until we have completed a Resonate Relaunch and aligned all our plans and ideas with the lovely folks at FairBnB.coop. They are the real experts on community and local municipality engagement and might best take the lead in that area? We could obviously support by developing our relationships at the local and venue level… for example (in UK) with
and of course the local label scenes in target cities
It’s potentially a big piece of work to do this properly, and I think we would need other sources of funding than just depending on a successful NGI application, so it would be great if we could collect a list of target funders / potential supporters for the proposal.
It is very early days: @melis_tailored is best placed to advise on when we might start to brief more widely / openly on this.
The eSSIF-Lab team is glad to inform you that your proposal has been selected during the Consensus Meeting to join the 2nd stage of the First Business-oriented Programme of eSSIF-Lab.
The final score of your proposal was 7.21 out of 10 points.

We will send you further instructions about the next steps of your participation in the programme and the contact persons who will guide you during both technical and business support, as well as feedback to your deliverables.
Congratulations once more and best regards.

Project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union, Grant agreement Nº: 871932.
To explain a bit more about the grant:
This grant award is for the ‘micro-consortium’ of FairBnB.coop, Pavilion and Resonate.
FairBnB.coop and Pavilion are the lead applicants, and Resonate is what the grant calls an ‘assurance community’. Because Resonate won the previous ‘first open call’ already (€106k) we can’t claim more then 15% of the awards for this ‘second open call’ grant, also totalling €106k.
So the maximum Resonate can get by the end of the process is about €16k… but it’s what is built, and the relationships forged with other co-operatives that is the exciting thing here.
