Theme: Music as Placemaking

This will be the first of our new 2018 series of 'mini' Sound Development conferences which will be taking place all over the UK.

In 2019, the Mayor of London is implementing the most pro-culture London Plan in history. Over 15 music venues are in development across the capital. Many local authorities, including Newham have implemented night time economy strategies into local plans. Yet, this is only the beginning. Some believe that there is still a disconnect between the planning sector and music, creatives and culture. How do we measure viability? What is placemaking's role? In support of Crisis, join us to learn about two examples of game changing music development in London — The Rattle and Tileyard Studios — and a debate about the future of music, culture, night time economy and development in London and what we can learn from each other — across sector — to continue to make London the best place to live in the world.
