The pandemic reinforced what music stakeholders already knew – the music ecosystem is a delicate network of interconnected organizations that dictate how we record, distribute and access music. When the ecosystem is aligned, great things can happen for musicians and audiences. When there is mis-alignment…we all fail to capture music’s essential value to community and humanity.The pandemic forced us all to question our assumptions, innovate on the fly, reflect deeply on the role of music in society and assess what we can do as stakeholders to ensure the health and vitality of the music community. In this session, music champions reflect on what it means to truly capture this moment. From venues to compensation; housing to wellness how can we push our sector forward with fearlessness and collaboration?
