Future Music Cities: Breaking Down Barriers to Social Cohesion

By EU@SXSW

Add to My Calendar 16/03/20 2:00 PM 16/03/20 3:00 PM Central Standard Time Future Music Cities: Breaking Down Barriers to Social Cohesion

Intersections of cultures can spur whole new genres and energies in creative communities. But whose music thrives? Cities include people of various economic backgrounds, races, religions, ages, languages, and musical histories. Policy makers and funders face different creative populations, tourist demands, commercial oligopolies, emergent collectives, ethnic groups, immigrants, and long-time locals who may not always get along. How do the different cultures “see” each other and live cohesively — or better yet, strengthen each other’s work? What can city innovators do to help at these intersections, while avoiding the pitfalls that come with so many voices to be heard? This panel will give emerging examples of city music ecosystems that enhance these intersections between multiple creative and civic communities.
