Sound Diplomacy is thrilled to announce its work with Belfast City Council to develop a comprehensive Music Strategy and Recovery Plan. You can read more about the project at

Belfast is a city with a rich and diverse musical history, and it has recently made a commitment to music, through the designation of the City of Music Steering Group, and a new cultural strategy demonstrating and recognising the value of culture and music to this city. This work with Sound Diplomacy will directly feed into the recovery of the music sector post-COVID-19. Belfast knows that music builds communities up, connects them, fosters equity and promotes fairness. But to ensure that music delivers for all members of the community, a robust set of evidence and data, and a bespoke and actionable strategy with an associated recovery plan are required to guide policymaking, outreach and planning into the future. Sound Diplomacy have committed to delivering this through a wide-ranging, important scope of work for Belfast, including cultural infrastructure mapping and economic impact assessment.

A survey has been launched today to all musicians based in Northern Ireland, music businesses, all relevant stakeholders to the music ecosystem and the general public. To complete the survey please visit HERE.
