Urban Music Policies Day 1

Dear City Groovers!

Here are some pictures from yesterday, our first conference day.

The first guest, Will Straw, gave a keynote on Urban Music as Policy Object, and then we had the possibility to hear some sessions by

our international experts on Rap Music, Cartography and many more interesting interdisciplinary approaches.

We are looking forward to what’s coming today, including our Jam Session that’s taking place at the Music School in Lūneburg at 6.30pm.

Stay tuned for more content!
