The British Council will partner YARAT Contemporary Art Space and iN Club to bring Boiler Room to Baku for a full-day Selector PRO workshop on Developing, Releasing and Promoting Online Digital Music Content.

The workshop will be held on 4 March 2019 at 11.00AM in YARAT. The Boiler Room will share their experience of growing their audience through engagement and engaging third party platforms in marketing. The workshop participants will be able to discuss narratives around local issues and ask questions.

Selector PRO aims to share the UK experience of music industry management in order for the Azerbaijani professionals to build on the existing knowledge and enhance their skills. Selector PRO aims to provide both professionals and the general public with the full insight into music trends in contemporary society as well as the specifics of the British music industry. The event has evolved out of the Selector music programme, produced by the British Council, which includes a radio show and a series of Selector Live parties, which will bring the best new music from UK to Azerbaijani audience.

Boiler Room is also joining us live on Sunday 3 March from iN Club for their first broadcast from Baku. For more information and to register, please visit Boiler Room's registration portal.

Entrance is to the workshop free, to register please visit our Selector PRO page.

All media representatives are cordially invited to a media briefing at 13.30 on 4 March, at YARAT Contemporary Arts Space.

The British Council in Azerbaijan would like to take this opportunity to thank YARAT and iN Club for their support.
