CULTURAL POLICIES FOR THE FUTURE OF MUSIC
Some of the central aims of cultural policies are to promote musical creation, its diversity and to explore new opportunities for the sector, as well as encouraging its dissemination. How have public administrations dealt with the current situation? And, above all, how are they going to face the immediate future? This panel discussion will answer these and other questions from different angles; three national institutions will address issues related to the current situation of subsidies focused on culture and, in particular, on music. They will focus their conversation on the transformations of grants and their adaptation to the new context, in which artists, professionals and companies linked to the live arts have experienced so many difficulties.
