Re>>generating Europe through Music – The 3rd European Forum on Music in Glasgow.
Glasgow as the host city has a strong history of regeneration through music and culture, which started in 1990, when the city celebrated the title of European Capital of Culture. What lessons can be learnt from Glasgow, and can these be applied to the broader European context which is currently being challenged by the financial, economic and social crisis that is affecting an increasing number of Europe’s populace?
The aim of this latest edition of the European Forum on Music will be to explore what role music and culture can play in this situation and to discuss latest trends and developments of the music sector in Europe.
Set in the stunning Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow, the third European Forum on Music will bring together musicians and music activists from across Europe to debate, network and share experiences. Themes explored in the sessions will include the role of music in cities, community and identity building, and the economic and social aspects of music.
Gill Maxwell, Scottish Music Centre MD, said, “ We’re looking forward to welcoming our European colleagues to Glasgow next month for what’s shaping up to be a stimulating few days of discussion and debate. And, of course, we’re gathering a wide range of Scotland’s young music talent to showcase to our guests.”
