Welcome and Intro by Vanessa Reed, PRS Foundation
Keynote/Q&A with Martin Green, CEO, Hull City of Culture 2017
City of Culture and Talent Development: how are artists nurtured in the context of an international celebration which seeks to make Hull a cultural destination for must-see events?
Supporting Talent Development across Genres
PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial 2017 and our Talent Development Partner Network celebrate collaboration and programming which works across and beyond different music genres. Hear from those who have successfully programmed or worked with music creators from a range of genres and across art-forms, and have seen more collaboration and common understanding as a result.
Let’s Explore: Coaching for Artists and Composers
Sound and Music’s Richard Whitelaw will lead this presentation session on the role of coaching, the impact it has on music creators and how effective coaching can improve the way organisations develop talent.
Venues which lead the way in talent development
Independent venues play a vital role in nurturing artists from small platforms to the big stages. However, meaningful creative development can be hard to deliver with the commercial pressures of the current live climate. This panel looks at how some venues are successfully delivering different approaches to talent development.
The Talent Development Pipeline
The decline in music provision in schools and the plight of independent music venues is rightly in the headlines of music industry manifestos. But what about early stage career development and the financial needs of artists who create the content around which our sector is built?
This panel will each present a brief provocation on their take on the most significant gaps in the talent development pipeline and the ways in which funders and organisations are or could be addressing these challenges.
Time to respond…
A discussion Chaired by our Facilitator Graham Hitchen which asks funders, artists and industry experts to respond to key points raised during the day.
Ahead of the upcoming Talent Development Conference , we have teamed up with The Warren for an evening of fantastic music from three of Hull’s music creators on Thursday 14 September. Find out more here.
