Discuss and learn about minority experiences in the music industry. Then, network to connect and share best practice and "next practice" with others committed to increasing opportunities in music for different groups of people.
The word "next" has several meanings: 1) Something that is closest, as in "he's next to me"; and 2) Immediately after, or the first occasion after the present.
Although artists and music professionals may acknowledge a lack of diversity in the industry, ensuring the future of the music industry requires asking ourselves, after awareness is raised: "Where do we go, and what do we do now? Who's up, whose turn is it?" Or, in other words: Who's Got Next?
