Over the course of two days (22nd and 23rd June) 120 local artistes, promoters and managers participated in a two-day virtual workshop which focused on providing persons in the entertainment industry with the necessary tools to export their talents.

The workshop is the second component of the Business of Music Training Programme which all workshop participants were required to complete prior to attending the workshop. The event was jointly hosted by the TTCSI, Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) and MusicTT.

During the three-week online programme participants studied a range of field-related topics including, how to enter the music market and succeed, identifying and establishing your niche, and contracts and protection of Intellectual Property rights. During the workshop participants were able to learn from industry leaders in the areas of the Business of Music; Metadata,

Digitization and Publishing; Music and IP: Developing and Export Plan and Music Marketing.

What are participants saying about the programme?

“Being a participant in the Business of Music two-day training program has taught me a lot about the importance of one’s creative content. I’ve learnt a great wealth on Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), Meta Data, Publishing Information, etc. I’m greatly moved on the way how important revenue streams; dimensions of licensing and one’s personal content/trademark can be of an indefinite variable asset to the sole proprietor.”—Chuma Watson

“The Business of Music workshop provided me with solid foundation knowledge of the industry. I particularly appreciated that the presenters added practical and local contexts to the information shared. Overall, it was a great learning experience. I feel informed and inspired.”—Yvan Mendoza

The next two phases will involve the completion of export plans and participation in regional and international showcases and B2Bs.
