This project aims to identify what the city’s music sector needs to thrive in the future and investigate what role music and culture can play in a broader, just and green transition. This project has so far cumulated in a mapping of venues and sustainable transport in the city and a social network mapping of music venues. The findings so far will be summarised from this project with a wider discussion around the impact of these findings. They will also discuss previous work (the ‘Fields of Green: Towards sustainable Scottish music festivals’) they have done with Matt around music festivals.
