Joining the Dots – The One Dayer: Finance, Technology and the Future of Independent Music
The One Dayer took place on 12 September 2014 – designed for anyone working in or with the independent music sector – indie, folk, jazz, contemporary music. Part of our Joining the Dots programme, the One Dayer included in-conversations, panel debates, practical how to sessions, oodles of networking and product demos. The One Dayer took place at Cecil Sharp House, London and was live-streamed on the web.
Video content from the event is now available to view in the Resources section of the website.
The event had a strong focus on two key areas that are crucial to all of us who work in independent music being able to make a living from the music we love:
- new financial models for live music
- how to use digital technology to drive up live income
The #OneDayer looked towards the future in a bid to ensure as many of us in the independent music sector as possible are as ready for it, as much a part of that change, as we can be. Delegates were invited to get inside, and be inspired by, new trends, models and ways of working, to exchange ideas, talk shop, and meet new people.
