At the working meeting held in January 2021 the Kantele-GO! project partners have developed Plan B for the 3rd project year. 

During the next year the project will replace some of the previously planned in-person activities with equivalent online initiatives. Kantele master classes and Music Laboratories for Russian and Finnish kantele performers and teachers will combine virtual tutoring on the Zoom platform and the use of video streaming services to join the International Kantele Camp in Finland. Live concerts will be broadcasted from International Folk Festivals to the Youth Kantele Forum and back.  Development of the Kantele Action Plan will be supported by a video conference or an online discussion event for kantele researchers. The reduction of travel costs will allow to conduct the upgrade of the chromatic kantele prima as approved by the Karelia CBC Managing Authority. 

Project partners: The Karelian National Song and Dance Ensemble Kantele (Russia), University of Eastern Finland, Runosong Academy (Finland), National School of Arts named after V. Kalaberda of Pryazha District (Russia).

The Kantele-GO! project is financed by the European Union, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Finland within the framework of the Karelia CBC Programme.
