Latitudes this week announced three days of panel talks examining issues specific to the Latin American electronic music industry.
Taking place from October 12-14, the three panels will examine issues of decolonisation, the precariousness of the industry in Latin America and the future of the media.
The talks will be available to view on Youtube.
Latitudes is a platform that aims to unite artists from Latin America as a way to create and think as a regional block, recognising cultural differences while coming together as a community. Check out details of each talk below, and click here to view the talks on Youtube.
