Channelling Talent


  • Communities

Channelling Talent explores the role of social networks in recognising and rewarding talent in the music industry.

Channelling Talent brings together expertise from sociologists at the University of Manchester alongside in-depth interviews with musicians, educators, journalists and senior figures at BBC Radio1 and LiveNation – two of the world’s largest live music corporations.

By raising awareness, and highlighting a diversity of perspectives, including innovative and progressive practices, Channelling Talent suggests how various participants in the music world can ensure their networks are efficient channels for talent - for everyone’s benefit.
