MW:M 2023 Mission Statement

In 2023, the opportunity to shape things seems limitless. We all love brilliant artists and great music – so where do we start if we want to create and market it better? MW:M23 will explore new technologies and tools by moving the human – our creativity, potential and vision – to the centre of our approach

Humanize Work and Life
How do music businesses use technologies to develop new ways of working? And which ones have already proven useful? We’ll ask them to show us.

Humanize Creation and Business
How do you place fairness at the core of creative work – and what can we do to improve? We’ll discuss the answers to this difficult question.

Humanize Tech and Tools
Which tools are putting the economic, cultural and social aspects of human creativity at the centre of their service? What changes if you embrace new technologies in a real, tangible, and  human-centred way? We’ll explore it.

We say: let’s put our human needs and goals next to creativity, curiosity and community, and let’s put it right at the heart of everything – however we develop, explore or deploy new technologies.

We say: Humanize!
