2020 Music Cities Awards Ceremony

Award 3: Best Music Cities Initiative To Directly Support Musicians 

​​​​​​​Webinar Title = How can Cities Directly Support their Musicians?
 Although there are many applications of music within city development, if musicians aren’t able to create and perform then those benefits and applications disappear. Musicians are vital to any striving music city, and with this award we wanted to recognise those organisations working to directly support their musicians. Join us to learn how our nominees are protecting musicians from the fallout of COVID-19, providing paid performances during the pandemic, and providing musicians with paid ambassadorial roles for their city.
