Is Culture Change in the Music Industry Possible?

Recording: Is Culture Change in the Music Industry Possible?, Mar 14, 2018


The music industry is increasingly aware of its own cultural problems, particularly in terms of the way diverse peoples are marginalised or abused. There is no shortage of outrage or proposed solutions. So why is change so difficult to implement? Why is our industry so resistant to change?

This discussion will attempt to get to the root of the music industry's cultural problems and explore whether it is possible for such a complex, fragmented sector to develop a common culture, what an ideal music industry culture might look like, and most importantly, how we actually get there.
