Pathways to mediation for live music events in the community
Monday, 15 April 2013 from 14:00 to 17:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The right to musical expression and enjoyment is a crucial part of our cultural lives. But what happens when it clashes with other rights- a good night’s sleep, clean communal spaces, access to your own street?
Promoting live music can be at the sharp end of these clashes as well as complex issues of planning and regulation - and it’s not always clear whose side the law is on, still less where the rights and wrongs lie.
The Live Music Exchange works to bring together a variety of concerned parties to facilitate dialogue. This event will examine the concept of competing rights and introduce participants to a mediation approach- moving towards working out specific issues and problems.
In conjunction with members of the Scottish Mediation Network, we offer the chance for a range of stakeholders to air concerns and look at the options available to them that avoid entrenched and potentially costly positions.
The session is free and open to live music practitioners, businesses and anyone affected who is interested in learning more about the surrounding issues and the process.
