Project Voting

Dear Forró organisers, musicians, teachers!

We, the administrative board of the Forró Federation, have put our heads together to come up with ideas that support Forró in Europe. We would like to present you these proposals to get YOUR FEEDBACK and VOTES, to know what to focus on as next steps and what your needs are. 


When: October 1st, 6 PM (CEST) for approximately 2 hours

Where: Zoom – simply reply “I want to join” and we send you the invite

What to expect: You can check out our proposals on the table beforehand here: 

Who is invited to join / who are Forró organisers, musicians, teachers:

If you are working with Forró – independent of if you already earn money with your events, classes, services or music or not – you are addressed and invited to join and give feedback and by this co-shape the next steps of the Forró Federation. It does not matter if you are a FoFed member or not.


What if you have a great project idea which is not part of the current proposals list:

We are happy to know about other ideas out there that should not be missing from the voting list! Please send us your proposal via mail (summary sentence & details), we will add it to the proposals list if it seems feasible. People will then be able to vote and feedback on your proposal too and if the idea gets popular, we will check ressources to realise it – in best case you can take over ownership yourself to make it happen with our support. The deadline to submit your idea is 27th of September to

How is the voting going to happen and what happens afterwards:

We will present the proposals to you in the Zoom session on 1st October. Each of you can vote on max. 3 proposals. It is mandatory to also leave a comment entering a relatable name/ and saying why you like the idea, so that we get quantitative and qualitative feedback. The voting on Feedbear will be open until 8th October. Afterwards we will meet in the board and based on the received votes and feedback, and based on the volunteer ressources decide on the next steps/projects of the Forró Federation. 

What to do if you want to vote/feedback, but can not join on 1st October:

Option 1) You can also participate in the voting without attending the Zoom session – the difference is that you can not get your questions answered directly nor get into an interactive conversation. But the rules are the same – max. 3 votes and a mandatory comment with name and qualitative feedback – voting open until 8th October. 

Option 2) If you feel like sharing your thoughts in an actual conversation with us and just cannot make it on 1st October, we would gladly arrange a separate meeting with you and hear your feedback – please request this via email.

How to feedback when you are not a Forró organisers, musicians, teachers: 

The Forró Federation was founded as an organization to support the professionalisation in Forró. Therefore, to decide on our next projects, we will focus on the needs of those who work with Forró or aspire to do so. We are of course nonetheless happy about feedback and ideas from any other forrozeiro/a – as more heads help to find better solutions! Please don´t hesitate to share your thoughts on our proposals in the “Feedbear” tool ( – but always make clear in your comment that you are not working with Forró yourself, as we want to consider with priority the votes and needs of you.

How you can support:

  1. Please share this voting invite with other forró workers you know, so we can base our future actions on the needs of as many as possible. 
  2. We are especially looking for volunteers to lead our proposals/projects!
    Each of the proposals will and can only be realised if we also find volunteers to take over ownership for them.
  3. And you can always support by becoming a paying member of the Forró Federation. The membership fees are used to cover maintenance costs and fund future projects.
