The panel will be discussing the way forward for music and live performance events in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, how they see their role and live events in general as we emerge from lockdown. The panel will discuss their artistic and organisational plans for the future, what we might need in the sector, and how lockdown has perhaps shifted their thinking about live events, digital, festivals and the arts in the rural creative economy of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
The panel are:
Mairearad Green (Musician and Visual Artist, Ullapool)
Graeme Howell (Chief Executive, Shetland Arts)
James Mackenzie-Blackman (Chief Executive/ Ceannard, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness)
Chair: Simon McKerrell (Newcastle University)
