NEWS: MUSIC SECTOR SUPPORT LAUNCH AT DIGITAL MEDIA CENTRE

MUSIC SECTOR SUPPORT LAUNCH AT DIGITAL MEDIA CENTRE @ DIGITAL MEDIA CENTRE, BARNSLEY
THURSDAY 2nd OCTOBER, 6PM-9PM, FREE!

Do you work or aspire to work in music? Do you want to make a living out of your talent rather than fitting it in around everything else? Whether your area is songwriting, performing, management, promotion or technical you need to attend this launch event for a new free programme of support.

This event will give you an overview of how you can run a successful music business and introduce a programme of support that is available free of charge to help you develop a new business idea or support an existing one. It goes beyond the performance and will explain how you can not just make money out of your music, but how you protect your intellectual property, how you ensure you are getting paid the right amount from the right people and how you can develop the business skills you need to not just survive but thrive.
