It is our aim to align artists, promoters, venues, educators, music production companies, and audiences, in order to strategize for equity among all members of our music ecosystem in the Greater Madison Area. Through these connections, we hope to deliver policy solutions to protect, support, and preserve our music community, using the power of music to create a more inclusive and diverse landscape in Madison, and beyond.
Our community-led teams will create and implement a plan to increase music-related jobs, local investment, including marketing opportunities to promote tourism, will strengthen the ability to attract and retain artists to our area, and improve community relations, especially for people of color.
