Right! Freedom of Music & Speech 2011


Södra Teatern, Stockholm

2011 has been a year of social uprising. From the Arab Spring to the summer riots in the UK and the Occupy Wall Street movement of the fall. What role did music play in all this?

"Right! Freedom of Music & Speech" was a conference on music, revolution and authors' rights. Arranged by SKAP - The Swedish Society of Popular Music Composers - the conference asked the following questions: How political is music in 2011? How can we support authors and musicians in the face of censorship and repression? Are authors free to express their minds in our modern, digital world? And how is freedom of expression connected to authors' rights?
