My project looks to encourage pubs, bars and venues to hold a regular amount of live music. I will start this project in Broadway Market with a strip of bars that run along this road. I believe I could achieve this through subsidy and through investment in infrastructure e.g An app which connects businesses, performers and consumers. I believe this process, although needing subsidy at the beginning will become self-contained and self-sufficient (not in need of additional and continual support) as once there increase in intresting events happening in local pubs and bars it will attract the attention of the community meaning it has the possibility of paying for itself through increase of sales and admission.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The reason I believe this is a great idea is because it fills a gap that exists in many of our communities. This is due to businesses not having the confidence that hosting live music would be financially beneficial to them. However if there is a culture of live music developing in the area it will attract and intergenerational and multicultral community invested in their own locality. I would use the grant to support businesses while the culture develops. Moreover, as in Cuba and New Orleans, where the culture of live music attracts people from all corners of the world, it will bring in revenue from tourism. Finally this project will increase the exposure of people to professional music. This will inspire both people to become musicians and musicians to develop, creating a higher quality of music in our communities and society.
Steps to get it done:
I believe this projet will be successful as I have connection to experienced software developers and many musicians and bars, being a musician myself. I have experience in event management in clubs and venues across London. I have friends who are closely connected to council music services such as Hackney Music Service.
