Coordinated by Kosta Kostov (Bulgaria/Germany), Global Club Music Network
For the 6th edition, the Annual Global Club Music Network meeting will present an overview of networks and information that artists and professionals in the global electronic world music scene can use to strengthen existing links and create new ones, develop business opportunities, increase circulation for artists, and foster collaborative music projects. It will involve a brief discussion on breaking into markets in Europe, North America, and South America. The central portion of the meeting will comprise a more extended discussion portion that could include breakout sessions on specific topics or among individuals. Discussions will centre on vital touring routes, financing strategies, as well as issues of inclusion, representation and how to use music as a tool for social justice. The primary outcome of the session will be for participants to meaningfully connect with each other.
