De Oosterpoort, B3 - Panel Room
13:30 - 14:30

In a complicated political context for the EU with Brexit looming, music industry players keep on reinforcing their ties at the European level regardless. Live venues, festivals, labels, export offices are gathering to work together as part of the Creative Europe programme, on topics as varied as artist mobility, circulation of repertoire, education or innovation.

This panel will offer a panorama of the key European projects in the music ecosystem and their role to structure the industry. What goals do they project? What new opportunities could appear for music through a potential European music policy in 2021?
