Re>>generating Europe through Music
18 – 21 April 2013
Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow, Scotland
Over 120 music practitioners from across Europe came to Glasgow to discuss the role of music in the regeneration of cities, and whether, and if so then how, this can be applied to a broader European context.
The Scottish town of Glasgow, a UNESCO City of Music, which since the 1980s has been undergoing a transformation from a former industrial city to a cultural and creative metropolis, was chosen as the setting for the Forum.
The opening speeches were held by Pete Wishart, Member of Parliament for the Scottish National Party and former Runrig keyboard player, and Simon Frith, sociomusicologist from the University of Edinburgh.
