    FuturesCasting – Where Do We Want to Go?

    When we talk about the future, we tend to talk about anticipated demographic trends or tech-driven science fiction.

What are our intentions of where we would like to take our music communities — and how do we get there?

    Rethinking Nightlife

    Rethinking Nightlife

    Music is part of nightlife, but the nightlife industries are a lot more than music. During the pandemic, nightlife was further challenged, including restaurants, hotels, bars, and other venues. For some cities, nightlife became daytime or just closed with curfews — and bubbled out into unpermitted events. Where do we want to go for robust local nightlife? For the nightlife industries, what practical actions and strategies are needed and planned for recovery?

    Scott Plusquellec | Office of Film and Music, City of Seattle
    Mike Bell | The New Colossus Festival; Lorimer Beacon
    Tara Duvivier | Pratt Center for Community Development

    Rethinking Music Jobs

    Rethinking Music Jobs

    In recovery, will careers and jobs look the same as before? Will there be new pathways or barriers in how we work together and what resources/assets are needed for live and recorded music? How might music and music industry college programs and continuing education change? Where will music jobs be? And will the jobs of the future look the same — or do we have a big bout of retraining ahead for the new-er music industries in cities across the world?

    Speakers:
    Armen Shaomian | Music and Entertainment Industry Educators Association (MEIEA), University of South Carolina
    Emily White | Collective Entertainment, #iVoted
    Nancy Tarr | Well Dunn

    Rethinking Space - Futures of Live Events

    Rethinking Space - Futures of Live Events

    As we return, we’re planning for unknown density, relationships with global touring, large vs small venue booking, increased costs, unknown appetites for tickets — what will the futures of live events be in the longer run, 2022 and beyond? Will the experiences change? Will concentrations of ownership change?

    Speakers:
    Eric Gilbert | Treefort Music Festival
    Ben Johnson | Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles
