Out with the old in with the new – studios are rethinking the old revenue models and reimagining what a studio can be. But it’s not just about money, studios are finding new ways to create and to be creative, and to become international hubs of activity. Whether it’s songwriting camps, artist residencies, education academies, writing for TV and film or even tapping into new government-based initiatives, their output is getting a huge boost. This panel includes speakers from Holland, France, Iceland, Germany and Estonia, and the perspective of established studio institutions, brand new studio start-ups and municipalities.

Whether you’re a studio owner looking for inspiration to take your operation to the next level or an artist looking for opportunities to get involved, this panel has got something for you.
