Following a series of reports – including Bido Lito! and LJMU’s ‘Liverpool, Music City?’ project in 2017 – The Liverpool City Region Music Board was established at the end of 2018, with the principal aim to sustain, support and develop the music sector in our region and to cement the city region’s position as one of the world’s music capitals. Over the last few months, board members and others from within the music sector have been developing more detailed work on key priorities identified from the recent strategic reports.
At Bido Lito!, we have always advocated that any policy around music needs to be shaped by the sector itself; the musicians, sound engineers, promoters, festivals, gig goers and everyone else who makes our music culture what it is.
So, we are pleased to announce that the LCR Music Board would like to invite you to attend an information sharing and sector consultation session on 14th May at Hinterlands. The purpose of the event is for board members (including Bido Lito!’s Craig G Pennington) to lead a discussion on this work and to listen to the views of the city region’s music community which will inform the next steps and work plan going forward. The sessions are intended to be open and collaborative and are designed to ensure that everyone has a chance to have their say.
There will be two sessions, at 1pm and 6pm, so everybody has the opportunity to attend. Places are free but limited for each session so don’t delay in registering.
