Whose Music Industries in 2021?

2020 also was a year of voices raised around diversity and inclusion in many areas of our lives, including music. When we talk about recovery, funding, and working together, whose music businesses are we looking to support? Does everyone have access to recovery funds? Are we looking to build back the local music business as it was or in ways to bring in more diverse voices and communities? Join us in a discussion about whose music businesses and communities we are building into 2021 and beyond.

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.
