HOW TO ENRICH YOUR LIFE WITH AND THROUGH THE ARTS.
The world of ‘A MUSTT' Educational Foundation has some answers:
Training | Consultancy | Research | Workshops | Concerts | Presentations | Lectures | BRIDGING Arts & Politics | Arts & Business | Arts and Science
A MUSTT Foundation (A rts and M usic U plifting S ociety towards T ransformation and T olerance)
is an international NGO that encourages people’s awareness about the peace enhancing, transforming, communicative, educational and healing applications of music and the arts.
‘A MUSTT’ Foundation is for all sectors of society who would like to develop themselves further with and through the means of art. MUSTT stands for bridging the different worlds of arts and music into more fields such as politics, diplomacy, business and science. We like to stimulate especially these categories about using the arts in more functional ways. Arts is for instance a transforming, communicative and educational tool, which bridges new cultures and visions.
Furthermore, arts can be also used as a creativity and innovation tool. As most people are using only 5% of their brain capacity, we believe that with expressivity and arts training we can help people to increase their brain power substantialy. For this purpose we have developed a number of trainings for different target sectors(general public, business, political sectors, artists). One of our mottos is: “artists get off your island and learn to apply your skills in more integrated and social ways in society”.
Arts and Music are unique common internationally recognised languages between all different groups of our society and as such does not need any translation. With arts you can help people and organisations in ways that go beyond common comprehension.
‘A MUSTT’ has been recommended by UNESCO and the EC as an innovative and solid organization.
'A MUSTT’ has prepared a European project implementing new innovative methods of teaching to which 21 conservatories and universities from 10 European countries have shown an interest.
THE WORK OF ‘A MUSTT’ FOUNDATION INCLUDES
a policy-making branch: interactive dialogue with decision makers in the music and arts industry as well as with politicians. Our purpose is to encourage better opportunities for musicians and artists in an interchangeable society.
a networking branch: art is an internationally recognised common language in the world and is a successful mediator tool for international projects which bring people with different backgrounds together.
an educational branch: our goal is to use our research and educate different groups in society with the latest innovative pedagogical methods.

EDUCATION IS POWER
and ARTS, EXPRESSION AND CREATIVITY an absolute “MUSTT” in life and “FORWARD EVOLUTION”! quote M.Djekova
Our current projects :
It is “A MUSTT” for us to make many sectors in society much more aware of the huge benefits arts can have in our lives. We not only concentrate on the public at large but also on sectors of societies, which are not yet fully exploring nor benefiting from the potential arts can bring. We specifically target the business, political, scientific and educational scenes in our projects:
- European Lifelong E-learning for Music and Arts (ELEMA): our e-learning modules cover : * business skills for artists and * new opportunities for employment for artists/students in existing and emerging industries: empowerment of women in the arts business. More than 20 institutes (conservatories, music umbrella organization, etc) of 10 European countries have agreed to collaborate with ELEMA.
- European Platform for the Support of the Arts and Music Sector (EPSAM): creates an interactive platform between different sectors in society to stimulate more interactions between “arts & business”, “arts & science”, “arts and politics”, “arts & education”, through collaborations, training and lectures/workshops.
- Collaboration and organization of concerts and lectures in private or public places in Belgium or abroad.
- Creation of ‘the school of the future’ for European talented children whom are deprived or less privileged (handicapped, ill, orphanages) and deserve to receive a chance to make the best out of their lives with specific training and support. This is why Milena Djekova Alexander, well-known violinist and speaker, has spent a very extensive amount of her energy, time, money and expertise into the creation and running of the foundation.
