New Music Scotland is inviting composers to join its third annual Networking and Discussion Day, this year centred round working in Europe post-Brexit.

The event will explore the implications for funding and free movement of artists, and how musicians should best prepare.

The panel will include Geoffrey Brown from Euclid, Sound and Music’s Susanna Eastburn, Norah Campbell from the British Council and Janet Archer from Creative Scotland.

In the afternoon, Kyle Brenders from the Canadian New Music Network will join Eastburn, Alan Morrison from Creative Scotland and composer Aidan O’Rourke to discuss Making a Living from New Music. The session will be chaired by Oliver Searle.

The day will also include networking sessions, the New Music Scotland Annual General Meeting and a networking lunch.

It takes place at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow, on 2 September from 10.30am to 4pm.

After a short break in the evening, guests are invited to the Echoes and Traces concert at Glasgow Cathedral featuring new works from Sally Beamish, Aidan O’Rourke, Matthew Whiteside, Allie Robertson and more.

Attendees from the New Music Scotland event will be offered ‘pay what you can’ tickets.
