1st Co-curated Community Event: What if the music stopped? - On Empowering the Music Community by building stronger bonds

Get your free ticket here.

The writers, and actors, strike in the USA was a significant example of creatives uniting to challenge major companies and the unfavorable conditions in their work. But what about the music industry? In this engaging session, we will address important questions impacting the music industry. Recent challenges, especially those highlighted during the pandemic, have made it evident that musicians and other participants in the music business often had to face numerous challenges on their own, underscoring the need for change.

This, coupled with the ongoing issues related to music streaming and limited alternative options, led to the following discussion topics:

Could a Strike be Possible in the Music Industry?

Enhancing Working Conditions

How can we build a stronger community within the industry?

Navigating the Streaming Dilemma

But here's the twist: We're not here just to dwell on the problems. Our focus is on finding solutions and empowering our community.

Join us for an inspiring conversation filled with fresh ideas and a positive outlook.

Guest curator and moderator: Susanna Pavlidis

Susanna is a project and artist manager with a focus on digital marketing under her own brand, SATHENNA, with international experience in PR and marketing, including positions in Mexico, Spain, and Germany. After completing her master's degrees and gaining years of experience in the corporate PR and marketing sector, Susanna decided to change her career path. Her entry into the cultural sector, particularly the music industry, coincided with the onset of the pandemic, which immediately exposed her to major challenges but also helped her recognize the industry's deficiencies. Many questions arose regarding certain processes within the music business, and after hearing "I don't know, it has always been like this" too many times, she decided to take action. Starting with a panel discussion, she aims to ask her questions and provide a platform for the topic, hopefully finding solutions together.

13.11.2023 14-18 Uhr // Erstelle deine Releasekampagne visuell authentisch und ausdrucksstark

Dieser Workshop beschäftigt sich mit dem Thema „Releasekampagnen“ und fokussiert visuelle und Marketing-Aspekte einer Releasekampagne.

Während sich thematisch verwandte Workshops rund um Releaseplanung eher mit dem Produkt(ions)zyklus und somit eher organisatorisch-administrativen Fragen befassen, geht es hier insbesondere um Alleinstellungsmerkmale, kreative Aspekte und natürlich Tools und Skills, welche Dir helfen, neben einer schlüssigen und stimmigen Releaseplanung auch die ästhetischen Aspekte angemessen und professionell zu berücksichtigen, so dass Dein Release auch visuell aus der Masse der Veröffentlichungen heraussticht.
