Description

Please join us at the Open Music Initiative Summer Lab Kickoff on Monday & Tuesday, July 11 & 12th




All information below is duplicated from the Kickoff information page at http://open-music.org/kickoff - please visit for more information and FAQs.




The OMI Summer Lab will run for three weeks starting on July 11th. It begins with an intensive two-day Kickoff which will progress through two one-week sprints, ending with a Demo Day at the MIT Media Lab on July 29.

The Kickoff is broken up into two days, both held at the MIT Media Lab. Full agenda will be posted soon at open-music.org/kickoff. The objective of the Kickoff is to expose a diversity of voices and stakeholders, frame challenges and opportunities in the music industry, and get inspired by & learn from analogous industries.


All members of OMI are encourages to join us for Day One. Day Two is optional and is OMI Fellow-focused.

Day 1: July 11th- Industry Download & Doubletake

Day one is an industry deep-dive into current challenges, opportunities, and emerging technologies related to data capture and tracking. It will feature a series of curated talks, panels, and short presentations from individuals across the music, media, technology, and startup worlds. It will also feature speakers from analogous industries to inspire with fresh takes on parallel challenges. OMI Members and their guests will have the opportunity to meet the Summer Lab fellows, and to connect amongst themselves.

Day 2: July 12th- OMI Fellow Design Thinking Initiation

Day two is an immersion into IDEO's Design Thinking process for the OMI Fellows. The day will consist of talks, exercises and skills transfers. This day will be facilitated by IDEO designers, and is tailored to give the Summer Lab fellows a crash course in the methodology they’ll need to leverage over the next coming weeks. If you’re interested in Design Thinking, or in participating in the lab in a coach capacity, you are welcome to attend as an observer.


All OMI Members are invited to both days. While Day 2 is tailored to be a crash course for the lab fellows, you are welcome to come observe and DIY learn Human Centered Design from IDEO. Fellows may use the members attending on Day 2 to ask questions and gain inspiration during research.

Also please note that OMI members are welcome to share this invite with one colleague to bring as a guest - i.e. up to two people from each member company. All attendees, members and guests of members, should register via this EventBrite so we can ensure everyone gets a seat.
