Description

Is Liverpool Really a Global Music City?

The time has come for us to create a Liverpool City Music Office run by us - the Liverpool music community.

But first we need to ask some fundamental questions...

What does music really mean to Liverpool in 2017? How is it valued? How healthy is Liverpool’s music ecology? Is Liverpool’s Music Tourism offer truly world-class and what role does new music play within it? Does Liverpool have a global music city outlook, in terms of its policies around noise, planning and the role of music in the built environment? How good are we at developing the next wave of artists in the city? Is Liverpool an international hub for music business? How joined up is the city’s music industry and music education offer?

Fundamentally, what is the future of music in our city? Who is protecting it and who is fighting for a future with music at the centre of the civic agenda?

Join us on 4th May to help shape some of the answers to these questions and set the agenda for what the Liverpool City Music Office will persue.

This event will also be a starting point in a new piece of research by LJMU, into the health of Liverpool's music ecosystem. Please take part in THIS SURVEY ahead of the event to put forward your ideas on the current state of play.

You can read Craig G Pennington's Bido Lito! article making the case for a Liverpool City Music Office HERE.

We look forward to seeing you on 4th May.
