In an effort to strengthen the connection between British and Ukrainian music sectors, the British Council in Ukraine is announcing the continuation of its educational series aimed at professional managers, producers and event organizers — Selector PRO 2018.
Last year, our team organized two Selector PRO music forums dealing with the distribution and sale of music in this digital era and experiments at the junction of music and other art forms. 23 sector professionals attended the sessions from both the UK and Ukraine.
Selector Pro I: British performer Ghostpoet, sound producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Okean Elzy), digital marketer Kamil Sattar, co-founder and director of the Welsh Music Prize John Rostron, Various Artists manager Ellie Giles, Ukrainian artists Nata Zhyzhchenko (ONUKA), Evhen Filatov of The Maneken, Miloš Jelić of Okean Elzy, and co-founder of Radio Aristocrats and the (A) Prize music awards Valeria Chachibaya.
Winter Selector PRO II: electronic music notable Max Cooper, A&R manager at Warp Records, Anna Jatskevich; project manager and presenter at London’s NTS Radio, Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura; business editor at the Complete Music Update agency, Chris Cook; director, Radioaktive Film, Darko Skulsky; and founder of Front Pictures, Yuri Kostenko, and others.

This autumn, we’ll be following a new format for Selector PRO events — intensive workshops developed together with instructors from the influential British And Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM).
SELECTOR PRO PROGRAM
Selector PRO sessions are scheduled for October, November and December 2018, with each session lasting a week and consisting of three parts:
- a closed professional seminar with a BIMM instructor;
- a public presentation by the guest instructor;
- a closing concert or Selector Live Party.
