New Music Scotland – Networking and Discussion Day

Event Details


You are invited to join us for our third networking and discussion day. A day where we all come together to celebrate the successes of the last 12 months, to discuss the challenges that we face and to plan how to overcome these and shape new opportunities.

Our main discussion of the day will be ‘Working in Europe post-Brexit – what are the implications for funding and free movement of artists and how should we best prepare?’ The conversation will be led by Geoffrey Brown from Euclid and he will be joined by Susanna Eastburn from Sound and Music and others TBC.

In the afternoon Kyle Brenders from the Canadian New Music Network (skypeing in now following funding challenges) will join Alan Morrison from Creative Scotland, Susanna Eastburn from Sound and Music, Aidan O’Rourke and Pippa Murphy to discuss ‘Making a Living from New Music’.

The day will include networking sessions, the NMS AGM (at which you are invited to contribute to planning the future direction of the organisation) and a networking lunch.

After a short break in the evening, you are invited to join us at the Echoes and Traces concert at Glasgow Cathedral featuring new works from Sally Beamish, Aidan O’Rourke, Matthew Whiteside, Allie Robertson and more.
