Episode 4

‘’Global club nights’’ is a networking and informative club series in collaboration with Caisa Cultural centre, Helsinki Open waves web radio and the Global music Department of Sibelius Academy, that aims to bring together all parties involved with music. With live music, seminars and workshops the events attempt to create bridges between musicians, event producers, agents, venues, and music lovers, bringing down barriers and creating a safe and creative environment of free expression. In a celebration of diversity, using the tools of intercultural collaboration and specialized knowledge, we provide the possibility of a neutral and safe space for sharing and exchange of knowledge, information, wishes and insights on the music industry in Finland, both on the part of the musician and from the business side while most importantly, sharing it with the community.

In this episode, we look back to September, revisit the wonderful conversation we had with Miia Laine at our first live concert, and reflect on the process of GCN at the moment.

Miia Laine is a Helsinki-based radio producer, DJ and arts worker. Previously working 3 years managing the community and student radio SOAS Radio in London, she moved to Helsinki in 2018 and has produced music programmes for Radio Helsinki, the Finnish national broadcaster YLE, NTS London, as well as various podcasts.
