Changing Roles of Music in Media and Civil Society

We have asked extensively in the past year: what is the role of live music and music communities in our healthy cities and society? Music has found its way into all of our digital pores and spaces, and we’ve fought for its funding in the offices of government. Have we changed or made more visible the role of music in media and civil society? Do we want to change this in our moves ahead? What social roles and awareness do we need and want to change in music’s futures?

About the Podcast

Amplify Music Communities
Local Music - Emerging from the Pandemic Globally
Music is changing locally around the world. Enjoy our Community Conversations with music leaders in cities, regions, and countries throughout 2021. And please get inspired from the panel sessions from the Amplify Music 2021 conference that we will roll out over the next few months. What is Amplify Music? Amplify Music began as a quick virtual conference in April 2021 to capture stories and challenges of local music early in the pandemic. We gathered 39 sessions of conversations across 25 hours in April. In April 2021, we gathered conversations back together for AM21. Please enjoy past recordings and the future Amplify Music Communities episodes.
