Imatge inicial

The second action of the project Challenges and Opportunities in Music Tech consists of an event open to the audience to discuss some of the topics that emerged from the Opinion Gathering action, in which more than 100 participants contributed with their opinions. 

The event will be organized in 2 thematic panels: one on topics related to Music Creation and the other related to Music Audiences. We want to open a discussion on how technologies have and will impact those areas  with professionals from different backgrounds, and the audience will be invited to participate actively.

The event will take place in a hybrid format, and the language of the panels will be English.
