The Future of the Music Industry (Video)


“Panel description: Improving our cultural infrastructure should be a priority for American recovery, and music certainly has a role to play. Innovation, education and investment are all necessary components, and each will depend on the right policy frameworks. To find the proper balance, decision-makers need to hear from artists about what they need to improve conditions in their own communities. There’s definitely plenty to improve, from live venues to music in schools to access to technology and the public airwaves. This panel of high-level policymakers will talk about government efforts to address these concerns, and how creators can plug in.
