Email sent to delegates of Unconvention22 in Preston
You are welcome to get involved even if you didn’t go to #Uncon22 last Friday
The #Uncon22 peeps kindly let me contact you so we can try and take forward some of the ideas that came up last Friday and make some more “joined up stuff” happen here in Lancashire.
Background: It was the last session of the day and it became clear that Lancashire’s big problem is that we are all over the place geographically. That makes it harder to work together for bands, managers, venues… everyone.
The starting point for taking this forward for us is tomorrow night at 8pm at the BBC Lancashire studios in Blackburn. I’d love it if you could come and get involved too.
The organisers and some guests from Friday’s Unconvention22 will be talking to me on the radio and I hope you will join us to throw your ideas at us and get involved with the conversation.
If you want to come down to the studios to chat, to give us your new tunes or just drink BBC coffee and talk about your experiences please email me back to let me know who you are and what you do please. You need to be there before 7.45pm.
If you can’t come then you can still email me back and ask a question or make a suggestion.
You can listen online from 8pm on Thursday 23rd June 2011 just click here! Or use one of those retro radio things.
Thanks for reading this… all I am trying to do here is help start the conversation that could lead to some solutions for bands, managers, promoters, service providers and venues alike.
I hear so many talented artists and bands every week as I put together the programme but artists tell me they need more opportunities to play live, work with promoters, producers, designers, video makers etc from all over Lancashire. If creative types across Lancashire could get together more and chat we could really build something here. That is what we are trying to achieve and I hope you can support that.
So if we can help make that happen then it is a winning/tiger DNA type scenario.
