"It is better to talk about a creative or cultural ecology rather than a cultural economy."
– Robert Palmer
A discussion about Music, Audiences and Spaces within our capital, hosted by Jim Carroll with contributions from key influencers, makers and shakers within the Irish music scene.
MusicTown, showcasing the multi-faceted musical talents and cultural agencies at work in our capital, is the perfect foil for a meeting of minds to address the questions;
What does it mean to be a 'Music Town? And 'What can it be, going forward?
How can cultural, corporate, city and community bodies work together to generate and sustain work for Irish artists, create new work through shared cultural initiatives, and, ultimately, unite and grow audiences?
These questions will be put to curated panels comprising of musicians, cultural and community groups and media representatives to get perspectives and insight from across the sector.
MusicFutures is an opportunity to explore the practicalities of infrastructure for music in an urban environment, utilising city spaces effectively as well as looking at the long term development of music, and future audiences, through innovative music initiatives for children.
