Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

With public support for the music industries and creative sectors, which are among the areas most affected by the Covid 19 pandemic, the wounds of the epidemic have been tried to be bonded up. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism initiated a special support program in order to support music industry employees who suffered during the epidemic and lost income.

The support program “Let's Keep the Music Up,” specially designed for the music sector, has been carried out in cooperation with Yunus Emre Institute affiliated to the Ministry, 6 major civil society organizations operating in the music sector, and 3 music professional associations. During the application, which started on December 16, 2020, and ended on December 25, 2020, applications were received to cover 81 provinces.

As a result of the intensive work of the relevant civil society organizations and professional associations, all applications were carefully examined, and it was decided to support 30 thousand 744 applicants. Popular Music Arts Foundation, Music and Performing Artists Association, Musicians and Artists Federation, Thracian Culture, Art and Education Foundation, International Performing Artists' Federation, MESAM with Turkish Music Federation (Turkey Musical Work Owners' Association), MÜYORBİR (Music Performers Professional Association) and MSG (Turkey Musical Work Owners Group Professional Association), which are civil society organizations cooperating with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, contributed in the process with a serious devotion in the processes of receiving, classifying and evaluating applications rapidly in the "Let's Keep the Music Up" support program.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

The first portion of support payments, which will reach 30 thousand 744 musicians and industry laborers, was completed in January. It was decided to increase the support payments, which were expected to continue for 3 months at the first step, to 4 months depending on the need. It is anticipated that all payments will be completed by the end of April.
