The impact of Covid will be measured for decades, but the loss of local live music is undeniable and cannot be sustained. Music must be recognized and supported as a vital expression of humanity that can carry us through crisis and upheaval.
MusicScene International is helping musicians, venues, and local music communities recover by working with local governments to open venues safely and to promote and monetize live streaming.
Live Nation and other big players are currently making massive investments into outfitting hundreds of live music venues with streaming technology in order to keep the revenue flowing even when the audience is locked out. Local venues need a platform to help level the playing field.
Grants from $100-$1000 for impacted artists, venues!
MusicScene is preparing grants from $100-$1000 for impacted artists, venues, and other music related small businesses. We are currently soliciting capital from impact investors to cover the costs of onboarding, producing promotional materials, and streaming live performances.
We imagine a music business cooperative, where the members have ownership, voting rights, and receive dividends that favor underserved communities and individuals. MusicScene International believes that building a global cooperative for live music will help local venues, gigging musicians, and the communities they serve recover from the pandemic and serve as a model for a future that supports local creative economies.
