Big elbow bumps and virtual 6' away hugs to you all. 

Here's a package of COVID-19 resources to offer you insights, catch your interest, or put on your Virtual schedule in this chaotic time. And the first one is Wednesday at 1 pm Pacific:  

Mar. 18 WebCall -- Public Health Outreach for Mass Gatherings: King County, WA

Last Friday, Kate Becker, the Creative Economy Strategist for King County, Washington, hosted a conference call to share her experience in coordinating Public Health Outreach for Mass Gatherings in response to the COVID-19 virus.
In response to numerous inquiries, the Music Policy Forum is hosting a second meeting – this one via zoom videoconference – that is intended for interested people who were not able to join that first session. It will be Wednesday, March 18 at 4 PM Eastern (1 PM Pacific). 
She will focus on how King County is responding to the virus, what they are telling their music venues, businesses, artists and community, and generally share her perspective on lessons learned throughout this process.

Feel free to circulate this invitation across your organizations and networks.

RSVP for this Zoom Session at this Eventbrite Link.  Go there also to sign up to get the replay.

This event is co-hosted by the Music Policy Forum, Music Cities Together, the Center for Creative Futures at the Maremel Institute, and UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. 

Virtual Interns?  Marketing Plans? 

Working from home?  We're connecting music industry professionals with UCLA virtual student interns (real people, not AI) who also will be working from home and can give you 120+ hours of help across April and May in this crazy time.  Email us soonest if this is attractive -- our next group starts March 30.  We can make this work for you.

Need a marketing plan done in that same time period by undergraduates to help you massively pivot right now?  We're also starting marketing projects with real bands, brands, venues, etc. for our 11th year on March 30.  

Podcast - Twitch for Musicians with Karen Allen

WFH can mean audiences who need to enjoy from home.  And artists who also need to WFH.  There is LOTS of streaming afoot, but we had Karen Allen, author of Twitch for Musicians, share insights in yesterday's podcast about both how complex this can be and how artists can find new audiences with this creative crowd.
