How Artist Residency Programs Empower Artists

Wednesday, March 16
12:45PM - 1:45PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 10A
531 E 4th St

From Berry Gordon’s Detroit rowhouse, home of Motown Records, to Montreux Jazz founder Claude Nobs’s chalet in the Swiss Alps, pioneers have been bringing together confluences of talent in artistic salons. Executives running artist residency programs in Montreux, Switzerland, Brooklyn, New York and Oakland, California will share stories of how their programs inspire and develop artists by giving them the time and space away from their busy daily lives to perform with established artists, to meet and learn from music industry executives and exposure to new audiences. Panelists will also discuss the challenges that they face and strategies for making their programs even more effective.
