Musicians who live, work or play in Greater Manchester and people working within the music industry can submit their recommendations to help shape and enhance music in the city-region. The consultation, launched today (August 22), will run for four weeks and will feed into the wider review led by UK Music.
UK Music will be supported by three chairs: Karen Boardman, Ged Doherty and Martyn Walsh and together they will explore how we can best support the sector, ensuring that artists are supported to develop sustainable careers, focusing on three key areas;
Education and talent development: Seeing what opportunities are available for musicians of all ages, to learn and develop
Industry: Looking at how feasible is it to sustain a career as a musician in Greater Manchester
Live: A focus on what the main challenges are facing music venues in Greater Manchester
