WOMEX Meetup

Short thesis

How can (global) music still change the world today? Successful approaches and their limits.


The WOMEX - the World Music Expo community of music professionals from 90+ countries is a working example of an ongoing intercultural dialogue. Not only through business networking but through concrete projects. 

Starting the meetup we will give you some examples of how music still can make a real difference, but mostly: let's talk and mingle!

Possible Examples:

  • Music markets and their contribution to cultural exchange
  • Music export and local project enforcement
  • NGO actions at music festivals such as 'Viva con Agua'
  • Going to politically difficult places with a festival or music event (strengthen the local forces!)
  • The Colombian "Paz" initiative at WOMEX 16
