Music and Birmingham’s Digital Cultural Future – Across Birmingham, new strategies are being developed that will look at the contribution music could make to the cultural and digital future of the city. Birmingham Music Network is leading an independent debate at this month’s Creative Networks event that will examine the issues, ask questions and challenge the preconceptions of the local music industry on what role music can play in this emerging landscape.

Birmingham City Council is currently researching issues surrounding the promotion of Birmingham as a music destination.  This debate is set to cover these issues and the wider areas of live music performance, music archive, the music industry and the support of the local scene.

Those taking part represent a wide array of opinion and experience, they include:

Robin Valk, long time a part of BRMB and developer of the Music Pilot Project (an archive that champions new local music);
Dr Paul Long, a reader in media and cultural history at BCU and the active presence behind many regional cultural archive projects;
Andy Derrick, an award winning professional performer, composer and music educator;
Abi Seabrook, a community and professional musician, also an active member and passionate advocate of the Musicians’ Union.

To join us for this FREE event, please email creative.networks@bcu.ac.uk or call Dave Taylor on 0121 331 5400.
