A consultation session to listen to the views of the city region’s music community has been held by The Liverpool City Region Music Board.
Board members led a discussion on their key priorities which have been developed over the past few months so that the wider sector could inform the next steps and work plan going forward.
The key priorities identified from recent strategic reports including:
- Safeguarding and protecting Music Venues
- Growing current and future Music Heritage and Tourism offer (including Beatles’ legacy)
- Increasing access to Music Education & Talent Development
- Music Strategy development
The aim of the sessions was to be open and collaborative and designed to ensure that everyone has a chance to have their say.
The LCR Music Board was established at the end of 2018 with the principle aim to sustain, support and develop the music sector in our region and to cement the city region’s position as one of the world’s music capitals.
Michael Eakin, Chair of the Liverpool City Region Music Board and CEO of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic said:
“It was inspiring to get the input of such a diverse range of people from across the music sector in the city region. They were engaged, creative and full of constructive and ambitious ideas for how we can grow Liverpool as a great music city. It was a reminder of the talent and potential we have and sets us firmly on our way.”
