Online event

Simon McKerrell, Newcastle University

The panel will be discussing the way forward for music and live performance events in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, how they see their role and live events in general as we emerge from lockdown. The panel will discuss their artistic and organisational plans for the future, what we might need in the sector, and how lockdown has perhaps shifted their thinking about live events, digital, festivals and the arts in the rural creative economy of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Join us for a stimulating discussion at 1pm on the 5th April 2021.
