Music Cites Network Panel –  Friday 21th September 14.30-15.30 

How should music institutions deal with artists accused of being discriminatory?

The world in alert! Looking at the current developments in terms of discrimination - racism, sexism, antisemitism and any other form of insulting behaviour is unfortunately on the rise. For music institutions - in the eye of the storm - the delicate balancing act of the freedom of art/speech and the value of human dignity becomes a daily struggle. Who shall we give a platform and who not? The Music Cities Network brings together four representatives of the music cities to discuss current developments and learning experiences.

Panelists: Katja Lucker (Musicboard, Berlin), Jesper Mardahl (Promus, Aarhus), Oliver Tura (Trempolino, Nantes), Merlijn Poolman (Cultural Music Entrepreneur, Groningen), Host: Lena Ingwersen (Project Manager, Music Cities Network)

*Reeperbahn Festival Delegates only*
