New Punk Strategies: Your Values = Your Biz
In today's rapidly changing music business, musicians are often caught between old and new business models. Many musicians care deeply about their communities and social justice issues, offering their services via benefits or blog and video/Public Service Announcement appearances. Frequently the way they establish their business doesn't reflect the way they operate in the world at large. As the shape of the industry changes, there are new options for structuring a musician's business so they can easily support projects and initiatives while guaranteeing more control over how their art is used.
We will discuss the need for, and options to incorporate, new business strategies available to artists so they can contribute to issues that are of concern, while developing a robust and sustainable practice. We will explore both innovative, already existing real world models and theoretical, conceptual manifestos.
