Nova Scotia Music Week is one of the latest festivals to join the Keychange initiative, a pioneering international initiative supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union which empowers women to transform the future of the music industry and encourages festivals to achieve or maintain a 50:50 gender balance by 2022.
The announcement was made today in Liverpool, UK during the Liverpool Sound City international festival and conference. Nova Scotia Music Week is amoung 40 festivals from across North America and Europe included in today’s announcement.
This follows the gender balance commitment made in February 2018 by 45 international music festivals and conferences including existing Keychange partners Reeperbahn Festival (Germany), BIME (Spain), Iceland Airwaves, Way Out West (Sweden), Musikcentrum Sweden, Tallinn Music Week (Estonia), and MUTEK (Canada) and new UK Keychange festival partner Liverpool Sound City.
Nova Scotia Music Week will take place in Truro, Nova Scotia November 1-4, 2018 and includes the Music Nova Scotia Awards, a music business conference and international buyers program.
