A South Africa music event that will pull together industry leaders, professionals and artists to talk business, explore opportunities and build relationships.
Music Conference and Exhibition (MOSHITO) is in its ninth year of running and aims at pulling industry leaders, professionals and artists together to talk business, explore opportunities and build relationships.
Moshito 2012 has some exciting partnerships for this year's event that include: - European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) who will invite European participants to form a panel with their African counterparts; - SA French Season, which will see collaborations and performances between and with South African and French artists and supporting speakers; - Jamaica who will create cultural and business exchanges between SA, Africa and Caribbean; - Reunion Island's Indian Ocean Music Market (IOMMA) in an exchange of opportunities between artists and professionals of the Indian Ocean, Europe, Australia, America and Asia, and - Department of Arts and Culture (DAC).
This year's conference will explore the following areas: a) socio-economic development (e.g. social security for artists, the rights and status of artists, performers, composers, policy development, SME development, skills development); b) industry challenges (e.g. licensing, piracy, copyright laws); c) new markets (exploring a "how to" for our artists and products to energise national, continental, international, digital and performance circuits and linked events); d) technology (investigating in the latest trends in technology available to operators in the music industry, honing in on how these can benefit artists, musicians and SMEs); e) live music (establishing and/or enhancing performance circuits through festival and live venue circuits for the benefit of our artists).
Papers should be submitted to by no later than 15 June 2012. Moshito Music Conference and Exhibition boasts an ideal platform for artists to network and showcase their work and this year the introduction of day-cases provides a stage for up and coming bands.
