As a founding member Enea Spring Break has become part of INES . Therefore this year’s conference programme is filled with English spoken panels.
FRIDAY 20th of April:
Can music make you sick?
According to the world’s largest known academic study into music and mental health conducted by the University of Westminster, although music can make you feel better you can expect exactly the opposite from working in the music industry. 71% of those surveyed experienced anxiety attacks, 65% depression. How do you deal with the inability to plan for the future, stress, the lack of support system and poor working conditions in a 24/7 industry?
Host: Misia Furtak
Sally-Anne Gross (University Of Westminster, former Mercury Records A&R)
Ralph Kaminski (Polish vocalist)
Guna Zučika (manager of Carnival Youth from Latvia, former manager of Brainstorm)
Welcome To Hungary! An introduction to the market.
In the last 16 months it was hard not to meet a Hungarian delegate or musician at any international conferences or showcase events from SXSW to Zandari. Thanks to the common export brand of their local market, HOTS (Hungarian Oncoming Tunes) as the new export bureau helped the professionals and the artists to develop a new method of open applications and funding, while the Hungarian music – along with the market behind that – started to become visible again. If you’re curious about the current trends, educational & international projects between the Polish and Hungarian sectors, don’t miss out this panel.
Host: Dávid Bali (Hungarian Oncoming Tunes, Liveurope)
Magda Chołyst (Art Coach, Outbreakers’ Lab)
Péter Soltész (AM:PM Records, trustee for IMMF Hungary)
