Music cities resilience handbook [Recurs electrònic] / Sound Diplomacy

Sound Diplomacy Ltd.
Publisher: London [etc.] : Sound Diplomacy, 2020Description: 23 p. : digital, fitxer PDF (6,12 Mb).Online resources: E-Link | Ressenya a Interacció Summary: We need music. And if we need something, we create systems, structures and policies to facilitate it, protect it and pay for it. This is not the case here. Instead, the content is what is valued, not the creator. Long standing inequities have reduced artist incomes, gutted music education programs and promoted policies that support multinational consolidation rather than local talent development. This should change. This handbook offers a different path. If we reimagine the role of music and culture in recovery, we can create a new norm – one where they are active, resilient, economic and social contributors for all of us. To do that, we need to think about music and culture differently. We need to be honest about what we have done before, what has worked and what has not and how – with no additional resources – we can create a better music and cultural ecosystem that works for all of us. Our objective is not to be definitive. It is to be inquisitive. How can we create more equitable music cities in recovery? If we are imagining future cities with more bikes and fewer cars, with cleaner air and fewer polluters, with more diverse voices making decisions, why can’t we also create better music cities as well? We can. This handbook outlines how music has been treated civically, the impact music and culture have on urban development and nine strategies to improve resiliency and create a better music ecosystem in the future. At the same time, we are convening experts via our music cities conversations and events platform to debate, rethink and create a new global brain trust around building #bettermusiccities. We can create better music cities and creative economies. This requires economies to commit to bold policies, leadership and partnership. This handbook is just the start. There’s more to come.
