Professional Development

Table Dish: Music

Wednesday, April 28, 2021
6 – 8:15PM

The Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) is proud to offer a third installment of our professional development series, Table Dish, to help further the careers of Asian Americans pursuing careers in the music industry.

Table Dish: Music, will bring together established professionals from different aspects of the music ecosystem (distribution, artist rights, booking, licensing, A&R, management, singer/songwriter, and more) to meet with aspiring professionals in a virtual roundtable setting to dish out advice and lead candid discussions to help foster their chosen career paths in music. The roundtables will provide emerging and mid-career professionals the opportunity to network and build relationships with peers and mentors in an intimate setting, offer a genuine way for A4 established professional community members to give back, and help nurture Asian American artists and arts leaders to ensure a robust pipeline of talent in the field.

Table Dish: Music will be composed of three 30-minute networking Zoom breakout sessions. Individual participants change rooms every 30 minutes to meet with a total of three different leaders. At the end of the breakout sessions, we’ll come together to share tips and follow up on unanswered questions.

Meera Dugal, Producer, New York Public Library for Performing Arts

Grace Lee, Head of Artist Relations, YouTube
