Show that musical voices matter in Portland!


Representatives from City Hall, Prosper Portland, Business Oregon and other agencies are eager to support a unified music community, but first we need to show them we are deserving and ready for their support. After a brief presentation, the MusicPortland Board and Advisory Council—including Kill Rock Stars, J-Fell Presents, Ear Trumpet Labs, McMenamins, Vortex Music Magazine, Bim Ditson of And And And, Tyler Stone of Sutro, The Future of What, DJ O.G. One, Anthony McNamer of Portland Cement Studios, Jackpot! Recording Studio and more—will be available to talk about specific programs and association benefits.

This event is the first full gathering of all the genres and sectors of our local music ecology. We will only thrive if we connect, collaborate and collectively bargain for what we need from public and private partners and each other. Solidarity does not mean we sacrifice our individuality or unique creative sparks. It does mean that we can only unite, defend and grow if we stand Independent Together.

Schedule:

7pm: Have some drinks and connect with your peers
8pm: Presentation by MusicPortland, City Hall and others
9-11pm: Networking and find out more about MP programs while DJs spin local tunes

The Future of What recently hosted MusicPortland board members for a conversation about the future of music in the Rose City—listen below!
