Led by the UK's PRS for Music Foundation, this panel gives you a chance to hear from expert funders and artists about different approaches to supporting talent development in world music and jazz.

Drawing from their experience of working with artists on creative & business development at crucial stages in their career, panellists invite the audience to debate what works, what's new and whether artists from different music communities could benefit from more opportunities to learn together.
