I was thrilled to represent Sound Diplomacy at this event taking place in my hometown – an excellent opportunity to show the world how a place can be rebuilt with passion, community engagement and, among other components, a vibrant music activity.
CLIENT: BARCELONA CITY COUNCIL
Sound Diplomacy developed a strategy for Barcelona City Council to design and implement a Music Hub in Fabra i Coats, a creative innovation centre in Barcelona.
What we did:
We developed a benchmark study of 14 music hubs around the world for the Barcelona City Council’s Culture Institute. This included a best-practice guide to implementing a music hub in an existing cultural centre in the city.
We have written a strategy for the Barcelona City Council to design and implement a Music Hub in Fabra i Coats, a creative innovation centre in Barcelona.
Some of our strategic recommendations have already been implemented, including the development of a radio station.
We also assisted in the development of a music committee, including music stakeholders, residents in the space, and the local music ecosystem, to establish alliances and strengthen the music sector in an area that is not central.
