THE MUSIC INDUSTRY 'A-Z'
The Summit was founded by three black women who love music, who care about the DC community, and who saw an opportunity to highlight the link between creativity and entrepreneurship. The goal of the Summit is to support musicians in building their creative business and create sustainability through their craft.
The Summit focuses on the DC Musician's business, community, and the art, the sessions are intensive, building greater understandings, deeper connections, and bursting opportunities. The DC Music Summit puts itself in the heart of the underserved communities/business, making it accessible, focusing on creative minorities, underserved business, and underground independent artists.
