MUSIC CITIES NETWORK and the CENTER FOR MUSIC ECOSYSTEMS announce THE EUROPEAN MUSIC POLICY EXCHANGE #musicpolicymatters
The MusicAIRE funded project launches the first ever music policy think tank for cities in Europe, leading to the publication of a Music Cities Policy Handbook in 2023.
EMPE is the first thinktank to integrate and enhance the role that music plays across EU city priorities, covering jobs and skills; education; climate action; infrastructure; tourism; the night time economy; diversity and inclusion and strategic planning.
Through a series of 8 themed roundtables between September 2022 and April 2023 - in partnership with Reeperbahn Festival, Eurosonic Noorderslag and a host of specialists and supporting partners - a number of best practices will be developed between European cities and international experts.
The findings will inform the publication of the first European Music Cities Policy Handbook to offer solutions, best practices and frameworks to incorporate music into the heart of local policy.
