EARS comes to India for the first time in December 2017 to create connections between professionals from the creative industries in Asia and Europe. Given the growing global interest in the creative industries and entertainment sector in India, EARS on Mumbai will present a platform for facilitating exchange of ideas, international dialogue, collaborative projects and networking opportunities.
The event brings together over 50 international leaders from the music, performing arts and film sectors and representatives from international government agencies to Mumbai to network, explore business opportunities and share best practices with their Indian counterparts.
The Mumbai edition of EARS features three tracks – film, music and performing arts with an overall strand of digital connecting them all. The programming focuses on track-specific topics from major sectoral developments and content curation to programming trends, and over-arching topics such as funding, investment, marketing and PR, arts infrastructure, amongst others.
The four days of EARS on Mumbai are packed with panel discussions, encounter sessions and real conversations with key industry players that offer numerous opportunities for new connections to be established and a range of exquisitely curated showcase performances and screenings.
