WHAT WE LEARNT WHEN EVERYTHING STOPPED
This has been a year to rethink and reassess. An enforced separation from one another and our audiences has meant that many people working in music have had to adapt to new ways of working and connecting. It has also given us time to reflect on how the industry used to work, and to consider whether this pause has given us an opportunity to make better choices as we restart. New ideas of how to connect with people online have already highlighted the potential for a more accessible and equitable sector, perhaps even eroding some social and geographical barriers. People have also had time to reassess how we value music in our lives and communities, and the importance of camaraderie in such uncertain times. In this session we consider what lockdown has taught us, and the positives we can take from having to rethink how we do things.
