WHAT WE’VE BEEN DOING IN JANUARY
As January comes to a close we reflect on
kick-starting the year with a bang…
Highlights from last month:
Shain kicked off the year with a New Year’s message, including some of our big plans for the year to come (Medium) - read more here.
We’ve announced our next Sound Development event on the 5th February at Republic. The event will bring together music and real estate to explore how you can use music as a tool for high street regeneration. All ticket donations will go to to #IAMWHOLE’s #M4MH campaign - register for the final tickets here!
Earlier this year we got together with Group Partners’ John Caswell for an amazing visual thinking session. A big shout out to John for helping us understand not only where we're going, but also why it matters.
Last week saw the launch of a very exciting project in one of our favourite places. We’re working New Orleans on the New Orleans Music Economy initiative and economic impact study. We can’t wait to get involved in the thriving music scene there. Read more on the project here. #NOME @GNOinc
