OneFest and Frank Turner present a weekend of panels, workshops and live music to inspire, support and develop a new generation of artists, performers and music industry professionals.

This panel will:
Seek to highlight the current challenges, explore ways to instigate change and encourage those from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds to pursue a career in the music industry.

Though some strides have been made in a broader representation of women in senior positions, more remains to be done in seeing professionals of a BAME background reach similar heights.

Discussion points:

  • What are the current boundaries which contribute to the lack of diversity in senior positions of the industry?
  • How do we overcome the issue of diversity?
  • Why is it important to have broader representation?
  • How can we work together to create sustainable methods that will allow such change?
  • How do we make the industry more accessible?

  • Terry Mardi – Terry Mardi Group
  • Jusnah Gadi – Young Music Boss
  • Tasha Demi – Journalist
  • Alexandra Ampofo – Acoustic Live UK

Networking opportunities will be available after the session.
