Preserving and Defining Creative Spaces

Date TBA

Preserving and Defining Creative Spaces brings together some of the music industries forward-thinking nonprofits, municipal programs and arts foundations that actively work to support and sustain creative spaces for artists; particularly living, practice and writing spaces in urban areas.
This panel will be a discussion of the changing creative landscape in urban areas and the rapid disappearance of rent-affordable spaces and accessibility to those spaces for independent musicians and artists of all genres and ethnicity. These space hubs, living arrangements and creative networks strive to maintain artistic vibrancy in non-affordable communities and supply tools for independent artists to internationally monetize their work.
