MCN Exchange Sessions Launch @ RBF 2020
The Covid-19-Pandemic will change our culture and music scenes profoundly during the upcoming months and years. Covid-19 has to be considered in our planning and implementation procedures for networking activities, concerts, and policy development.
With the Music Cities Network Exchange Sessions, we want to raise and discuss key questions the music ecosystem is currently faced with. MCN Exchange Sessions will be the conversation platform for your music city communities, ranging from and connecting policy makers, music businesses, artists, and all other music city stakeholders.
The sessions are target-group-oriented, focussing on vital topics, key learnings, and leading to further arising questions. Our aim is to create a sustainable online exchange, focussing on transnational input evolving into new perspectives and action plans for your music policy work. Let’s learn from each other and shape the future together.
