Look for suitable partners and organize concerts with free music: Frederic Chopin has his 200th birthday in 2010, Franz List in 2011. Or go to Europe (where copyright expires 70 years pma) and chose a composer who died in 1939 or 1940 respectively. Can be used as fund raising events.


Think outside of the box of wikis and establish the WMF in the world of free culture. Start with a single concert in 2010 and organize a festival in 2011.


Go beyond the wikis, move the MWF into the center of a movement for and with free culture.

Key Questions

  • Does the WMF even want to think outside the box of wikis and online culture?

Potential Costs

  • very limited if you chose a string quartet or chamber orchestra - or even profitable if combined with a fund raiser
  • The sky is the limit for a six week festival in four European capitals.
