About Making Money From Music-unconference
Music is a hugely important part of our lives both for leisure and for many, as a source of income…and Southend-on-Sea is one of the UK’s best-known music towns where we know this is true!
However, for many, trying to make a living from the music industry is a tough nut to crack so in an attempt to help boost the skills, knowledge and understanding of local musicians, composers and producers, The Hive Enterprise Centre, Southend’s leading business start-up and growth hub is proud to host the exciting “Jazz East- Music Industry Unconference as part of this year’s Southend Jazz Festival.
Open to anyone with a genuine interest or an active professional or amateur involvement in the music business, the Jazz East Unconference is a series of audience-led discussions, workshops and Q&A sessions designed to give delegates some valuable take-aways that set them on the path to or further along their careers in the industry.
The theme of the Unconference is Making Money from Music and facilitated by leading local lights in or aligned to the music business we’ll be encouraging valuable discussions on marketing, contracts, technology and performance and indeed anything the audience wants to on the night.
As we’re hoping to have a room full of amazing local musicians, we’ll finish of the event with a live performance from a professional jazz band and then open that up to a jazz jam, where everyone can join together to create what we’re calling “The Sound of Southend”, a unique piece of improvised music that we’ll record and share with the world …….to show off just how talented Southend Musicians can be!
Open to all ages and aficionados of all music styles, the event is strictly by pre-registered ticket only and light, non-alcoholic refreshments will be served available throughout the event.
The event will be photographed, filmed and recorded for use by the organisers and those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and we will ask for proof of age as we deem appropriate (sorry to be all bossy, but its an insurance thing!).
