Open Artist Series: Community Building & DIY Networks

The next event in our Open Artist Series will take place at Manchester’s most exciting new music venue YES – with a focus on ‘community’.

Aimed at musicians in the early stages of their career, you’ll get the chance to hear from and chat to other emerging musicians, established artists and industry professionals including:

  • Adrian McNally (The Unthanks)
  • Steve Pycroft (Riot Jazz, Kaleidoscope Orchestra)
  • Girl Gang Manchester
  • Dan Valentine

In a relaxed and informal setting, together you’ll explore:

  • How to build a music scene, or join an existing one
  • How to exist as an artist, even when you’re in an isolated area
  • How to create your own space, and fill it

Timings:

  • 9:30 – Registration
  • 10:00 – 14:30  – Event (full agenda tbc)
  • 14:30 onwards – Social in the YES bar

The Open Artist Series is part of a three-year programme supported by Help Musicians UK. Through a series of events, mentoring opportunities and showcases, it will support emerging musicians to make a career in music – encouraging and enabling them to become innovators in their own careers, and active contributors to a fairer and more sustainable music industry.
