Amsterdam Zuid-Oost is a district with a lot of creative and musical talent, who sometimes even manage to break through internationally. However, Amsterdam Zuid-Oost lacks its own music ecosystem. There are few or no locally rooted companies and organizations that offer a place for talents to meet, develop, perform, or present their work. Despite the rich musical breeding ground and numerous individual success stories, the music sector is therefore not yet a flywheel for a thriving community.
The question now is: how a culturally relevant, economically healthy music ecosystem in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost, run by the local people from Amsterdam Zuid-Oost, can be built.
