CMU+TGE 2021 Panel: Building A Healthier Music Industry

By | Published on Tuesday 4 May 2021

TGE Panel - Healthier Industry

The Great Escape Online is taking place on 13 and 14 May, with a packed conference programme of interviews, webinars, briefings and debates, both on-demand and live, as well as networking opportunities galore within a bespoke online conference platform.

CMU is presenting three strands of panels and briefings this year. That includes Future Music World, which will investigate and celebrate initiatives that are making the music community more diverse, more healthy and more connected, and consider the challenges and opportunities music-makers and other creators face in the globalised digital world we live in today. Look out for this panel as part of the Future Music World strand…

The responsibility of the music industry to protect and safeguard the physical and mental health and wellbeing of music-makers and everyone working in the sector has become a big talking point in recent years. New programmes and policies have been introduced to better support music people, though plenty of work still needs to be done.

We talk to some of the people who have been leading this conversation, putting the spotlight on some key initiatives that are already delivering, asking what practical steps we need music companies to make, and considering where this vital conversation will head next.

Joining the conversation will be psychotherapist Tamsin Embleton, musician and psychologist Dr Simon Rowbottom, Joe Hastings from Help Musicians and Tristan Hunt from the Association For Electronic Music.

To access the CMU strands and all the other content available as part of TGE Online this year get yourself a delegate pass here.
