Details Announced For The Coalition 2016
15 February 2016
The Coalition launched two years ago as a creative boot camp aimed at individuals who wanted to transform their ideas into business. The larger vision for the organisation is to eventually create and support a community and ecosystem for creative industries in India to grow.
We’ve been inspired by the various workshops, panel discussions and talks for two years now and we’re very proud to announce that the music stream at The Coalition will be co-curated by Wild City.
On 4 March this year, The Coalition divides itself into a number of sub categories (including publishing, gaming, comedy, art & photography and of course, music), which will be exploring creative industries in more depth. You can see the entire schedule for each stream here on their website.
The Coalition’s music focussed talks will be talking place at The British Council in Connaught Place. The day begins with a panel discussion on 'Live Shows' and how artists, promoters and venues can create more immersive experiences for their audiences. This will be followed by a discussion on ‘Future Communities’, which will cover the importance of community in the evolving contemporary music landscape, and the role technology plays in that. Speakers include The Humming Tree’s Nikhil Barua, prolific social music entrepreneur Ruth Daniels as well as Raj Chaudhuri, head of music at Boiler Room and Livin' Proof co-founder.
Discussions post-lunch include ‘Breaking Through’, where talent managers talk about their evolving role in charting an artist’s career and ‘Backstage Business’, where entrepreneurs give you an honest insight into different aspects of the music business.
Bands and producers who are just starting out are in for a treat with ‘Hit Send’ – a through-the-day event in which The Daily Pao editor Amit Gurbaxani and photographer Naman Saraiya will give young outfits the bios and band shot they need to make the perfect press kit.
