THE 2018 OFFICIAL NZ MUSIC MONTH SUMMIT

‘CONFRONTING ISSUES IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY’

 

The Official Music Month Summit returns for 2018, and this year it is tackling some of the issues the Music Industry has been facing up to over the last year.

Held at the Herald Theatre in the Aotea Centre in Auckland, the Summit features a stellar line up of music industry professionals and speakers, who will challenge and create thought-provoking  conversation around some of the industry issues that have been highlighted in the past twelve months.

The day comprises of four sessions, with four speakers for each topic and an open Q&A after each session.   The subjects and speakers are:

WOMEN IN MUSIC  

With the worldwide explosion of #MeToo and the gender pay gap revelations, gender inequality has been a hot topic this year across all industries.  Four women from different areas within Music Industry will talk about their experiences. 

DIVERSITY IN MUSIC

Is there racial and LGBTQ discrimination within the music industry? Four artists share their experiences and point of view drawing from their individual journeys.

WELLBEING

Health and wellbeing are fundamental to music-making at all levels, but also across all areas of the industry – management, production, crew.  Four speakers from different corners of the Music Industry share their stories.
