Rethinking – Changing Roles of Music in Media and Civil Society
12:25 pm PDT / 1:25 pm MDT / 2:25 pm CDT / 3:25 pm EDT
We have asked extensively in the past year: what is the role of live music and music communities in our healthy cities and society? Music has found its way into all of our digital pores and spaces, and we’ve fought for its funding in the offices of government. Have we changed or made more visible the role of music in media and civil society? Do we want to change this in our moves ahead? What social roles and awareness do we need and want to change in music’s futures?
