Event description

Description

Listen Up! A Conversation Series consists of a series of talks to review the planning of VIM House to date, to generate discussion and explore the road ahead for the culture and cultivation of music in Vancouver. Listen Up! will allow the Society to bring Vancouver’s music visionaries together to learn about cooperative music venues, and about creating and maintaining sustainable operating models for live music. The intent is to open doors and minds to the possibilities for live music now and in the future. As development plans are being presented for Northeast False Creek, it is essential the music community find a way to present a unified vision for the proposed music incubator/venue.

The first in this Conversation Series will feature a session on acoustics design, presented by Larry Tedford (San Francisco), the lead consultant on the development of the VIM House Acoustical Design Book. The conversation will be moderated by Donald Luxton.

Reception to follow.
