Birmingham Music Network Meeting – 4pm Thursday 26th September 2013

The next Music Network meeting will be on Thursday 26th September 2013. (No Meeting in August – sorry)

The Meeting starts at 4pm and will finish at 5.30pm at Birmingham City University, Millennium Point, Curzon Street, Birmingham, B4 7XG.

Anyone involved in Music in the region is welcome to attend, its free and there will be tea and coffee provided.

The Music Network organises a NETWORKING EVENT on the last Thursday of each month, for the benefit of music related businesses in the West Midlands region. If you have any involvement in music, come and talk about what you’re up to and meet some new people. These Networking events are about all things music in the region. They’re about helping you to teach yourself how to do it, by yourself, for yourself and encourages you to share the knowledge with others so they can do the same. If you are a musician, a student, someone who works with musicians, represents musicians, has involvement with the music industry, or are looking to make new contacts…..the meeting will be useful.

If you have news to report, a presentation to give, an event to promote, any new points for discussion, a pitch to make, business cards or flyers to hand round, an appeal for help, advice or guidance or even if you just want the free tea and biscuits and some serious discussion…you are invited.

You can also post in by email any news or press release information for inclusion on the website and for distribution through the mailing list and RSS feed. More details on the website.

Please pass this invite on to Musicians you know or anyone else who you think may benefit.

I have updated the Music Strategy page here, there are a number of interesting articles on the subject of Music, Birmingham and what can be done to inspire, develop and promote music from the region. Some of the opinion pieces are really worth reading and there are a few videos to watch too. If anyone would like to contribute any other articles for inclusion, please send an email with futher details, files, or links to mark at birminghammusicnetwork.com.
