Black Music Congress 2021: ‘Sounding Off: What’s The Way Forward For British Black Music?’

Thursday June 10 2021, 6-8pm

We go back to the old school Black Music Congress mode with a debate. We want the focus to be on practical solutions, and to hear from all sectors of the British black music stakeholders, from musicians, writers, managers to fans.

This is a have your say forum – all stakeholders welcome!!

There will not be a panel, as we expect positive suggestions and practical solutions to come from anywhere within our stakeholder community, whether or not you’re a musician or not. However, we are up for having some special guests, who’d have guaranteed space to contribute to the debate. If you have ideas for moving forward the debate and British black music, or would like to contribute on the day, we’re waiting to hear from you: Kwaku,
