August 6th - The Future of Live Music During a Pandemic
COVID has had an incredible impact on the face of live music. Recently, venues and promoters all over the United States have organized under non-profit banners of NIVA, the National Independent Venue Association, and IPA, Independent Promoters Alliance, to lobby for recognition of this important sector. Bi-partisan bills for venue funding have been introduced in both the House and Senate, however, the future of many music and arts spaces remains perilous.

Addressing The Black Lives Matter Movement
The MEIEA board stands in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism and oppression of any kind. We do this hand in hand with our colleagues, students, and peers in the music and entertainment industries and in recognition of those hurting within the Black community. The entertainment industry and greater global culture owe a debt of gratitude to the inspiring artists, entrepreneurs, and other influencers of color who have made invaluable contributions to our daily lives and histories. It is high time their equity and agency be celebrated, recognized, and protected.
