The Texas Music Office and the Dallas Creative Industries Office, a division of VisitDallas, will co-host a virtual Music Friendly Community Workshop on Monday, July 13th via Zoom. The workshop is open to anyone interested in learning about the new Texas Music Office program that seeks to foster music business economic development in Texas cities and communities. Chip Adams, Community Relations & Outreach Specialist of the Texas Music Office within the Office of the Governor’s Economic Development and Tourism Division, and Texas Music Office Director Brendon Anthony will be present during the virtual workshop to explain the Music Friendly Community designation and answer questions. VisitDallas is in the process of securing the Texas Music Friendly designation for Dallas and this workshop is part of that process.

“With support from the Texas Music Office, the Texas music industry created more than 209,000 direct and indirect permanent jobs in communities all across the Lone Star State last year and generated $23.4 billion in economic activity,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “Music Friendly Communities certified by the Texas Music Office are serious about attracting and developing local music industry growth, and I’m proud of the work of the Texas Music Office in helping cities like Dallas to grow their local economy.”
