What’s Un-Convention? “Un-Convention is a global grassroots music event and community – that meets physically and virtually to share ideas; discuss and debate cutting edge issues around music, technology and creativity; and facilitates members engagement with their peers. Un-Convention is not about the business of music. The community is driven by a not for profit initiative that sees opportunity for the grassroots in the changes to the way music is being produced, consumed and sustained.”
And that concludes this week’s edition of This Week in Tumblr! Looking forward to a terrific week ahead.
