The CAMunity Music Leadership Program is a free eight-week professional development for Denver area musicians, funded by the CU Denver Presidential Initiative on Urban and Place-based Research. The program promotes the further growth and development of our local music economy through education and leadership development.
The CAMunity Music Leadership Program is a research project led by College of Arts & Media (CAM) associate professor Storm Gloor and eight CU Denver students from the Music & Entertainment Industry Studies, Film & Television, and Management departments. Students develop the curriculum and host all learning sessions, which will cover essential business concepts and current issues within the music industry.
Sessions will also focus on career planning, advocacy, activism, social justice issues, music community building, and more. Participants will be introduced to local music organizations and key stakeholders within the Denver and Colorado music economies. They will also be provided with information helpful to advancing their artistic careers, and given opportunities to cultivate their professional networks.
The research component of the CAMunity Music Leadership Program will explore the potential for further iterations, the viability of the model for application in other communities and arts disciplines, the effectiveness of the curriculum design, and assess the achievement of desired outcomes for participating musicians. Students developing and leading the program will also gain a unique experiential education opportunity in service to their community beyond the classroom.
