We are off to the golden state for ten days to learn what other municipalities are doing to support live and local music and musicians. We are heading west on I-40 through Windslow, Flagstaff and Kingman, on to Barstow and then south to San Bernadino, LA and Santa Monica. The final leg of our trip will take us to Indio and on to the Phoenix area.
Along the way, we’ll share what we’ve learned and find out about programs that help to promote their music scene to the rest of the world. We’ll also look at creating an exchange program for musicians, bringing artists here and sending Albuquerque artists on the road.
We’ll be posting here each day on what we have discovered, some of the ideas exchanged and where we’ve been.
