Open letter: Claiming a front row seat - the place of music in society
Together with over 70 International, European and national music organisations, we are addressing an open letter to decision-makers to call for better recognition of music in all policy areas. In the letter, we highlight the challenges the sector has been facing since the beginning of the pandemic and point out to the resilience of music venues, centres, festivals and other organisations to adapt to these unprecedented times. Though the sector has slowly started to resume its activities, there are still many uncertainties ahead that may impact its recovery. We are therefore requesting decision-makers to fully knowledge the artistic, social and economic value of the music sector and take this into account in all future political actions.
