The panel explored the crucial relationship between local music scenes and music programmers.

Our panelists were: Patti Schmidt (MUTEK), Dan Seligman (Pop Montreal), Anthony Galati (Never Apart) and Sarah Lamb (Hush Lamb).


The questions explored included:

—  What is the role of these music curators in showcasing and growing the local music culture?

—  How do they balance emergent talent and bigger names?

—  How do current diversity questions (gender, race, etc.) figure in curatorial decisions?

—  What are some tensions and limitations festival programmers face and how do they overcome them?

In essence: what is it like to curate a music program in the cultural and technological climate of 2016?
