DC Talks Music/FilmDocs/Media: Cross-Sector Dialogue in Today’s Digital Culture
We live in a competitive entertainment marketplace where digital technology has fundamentally shifted the relationship between creator and audience. Lower production costs have fed an explosion of content, and new delivery platforms are redefining the creation of art and how it’s accessed by audiences. Across all disciplines, artists and arts advocates have felt the pressing need to assert agency over the structures that dictate audience development, compensation structures, access to capital, delivery platforms and the broader social impact of their work. In many cases, these attempts to create sustainable cultural ecosystems have overlapped with discussions about the role of government at the local, state and federal level.
On October 28, Georgetown University’s Music Program will bring together a wide array of stakeholders from across the US—musicians, documentary filmmakers, comedians, podcasters, researchers and government officials—to discuss what role the public sector is playing in the expanding digital culture landscape. The goal is to explore what the various arts communities and media might learn from each other, and to discover how like-minded creators can benefit from integrating strategies and networks.
