Texas Music Communities on Life Support

This session will deep dive on the music community and industry in Texas, and what can be learned from music communities in the US who have faced similar problems. How has the evolution of Texas's cities affected musicians and music communities? What is working to help those communities thrive and what isn’t? What should government lead vs. private sector vs. non-profits?

Join a discussion on what Texas cities are doing to ensure that music will thrive as the music industry as a whole evolves and how the music industry can integrate into the overall economic growth within Texas.
