In this network meeting, we will share experiences that can help develop our ventures further. This year, we will be joined by Derek Debru from Nyege Nyege, Alice Whittington from Soundway and Jay Rutledge from Outhere Records. They will be sharing their experiences on how to best collaborate with African artists, organize, strategize, structure teams and exchange ideas on working together in times of pandemic. We wish to open the conversation to everyone, share facts, create unique opportunities and find new ways to think and act as a global community. Let’s connect and help shape a more exciting future in this ever-changing world of music.
