Relocation – Transformations of City Centers and Suburbs

Where do we want to live if we have our choices? And where do we want to engage with music if we’re working and living in a hybrid or remote work world? Not all of us changed locations, but Central Business Districts are struggling with their futures and suburbs in many cities are the new normal. What does all of this do to permanently impact city centers and in many cases the locations of our music venues and city festivals? This session will discuss the past year’s transformations of city centers and suburbs.

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.
