MUSIC COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION 20201019-2bi 10/19/1010 Date: Subject: Motioned By: Commissioner Reynolds Seconded By: Vice-chair Jonathan “Chaka” Mahone Recommendation Live Music Fund Working Group Recommendation 1. The Music Commission voted to support the Live Music Working Group recommendations to develop a framework for the effective use of Hotel Occupancy Tax funds, as appropriate for the commercial music sector by the City of Austin, for the enrichment of Austin Musicians, Music Venues and Music Tourism through sustainable investment. A copy of the report is attached as Exhibit A, Live Music Fund Recommendations. 2. City staff is encouraged to explore funding sources outside the City to supplement revenue generated by Hotel Occupancy Taxes. Recommendations for pursuing private philanthropy is attached as Exhibit B, Funding Model Observation and Recommendations. Description of Recommendation to Council 1. The Live Music Working Group recommends the creation of a citizen-led advisory board to govern the use of funds. The board, divided into subcommittees, will drive future board nominations, review board structure and responsibilities of sub-committees, pursue opportunities for private philanthropy, review grant criteria, metrics interface with a financial administrative body, and review grant proposals based on established criteria. The Fund should be administered by a local nonprofit organization having familiarity with Austin’s music community and demonstrated expertise in managing funding for various music and arts entities. 2. The Music Commission asks staff to research, identify, and pursue additional funding streams such as corporate philanthropy and public-private partnerships. The technology sector in particular is a logical avenue of support for Austin’s iconic yet struggling music economy. Rationale: 1. The ordinance effective September 30, 2019 allocates the use of hotel occupancy tax revenue to provide additional funds for local music and historic preservation. Specifically, of the additional two percent hotel occupancy tax for the Convention Center Expansion, an amount equal to 15% of the two percent assessment is allocated to the Live Music Fund for local music that meets the requirements of Texas Tax Code Section 351.101(a)(4) and that is not funded through the Cultural Arts Fund. Section 351.101 (a) (4) states the available uses as “the encouragement, promotion, improvement, and application of the arts, including instrumental and vocal music, dance, drama, folk art, creative writing, architecture, design and allied fields, painting, sculpture, photography, graphic and craft arts, motion pictures, radio, television, tape and sound recording, and other arts related to the presentation, performance, execution, and exhibition of these major …

MUSIC COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION 20201019-2bii 10/19/1010 develop a framework for the Systemic Racism Working Group Recommendation Date: Subject: Motioned By: Commissioner Reynolds Seconded By: Vice-chair Jonathan “Chaka” Mahone Recommendation Pulling from the stated mission of the Live Music Working group to ‘ effective use of Hotel Occupancy Tax funds, as appropriated for the commercial music sector by the City of Austin, for the enrichment of Austin Musicians, Music Venues and Music Tourism through sustainable investment,’ the Music Commission recommends that a Preservation Innovation and Elevation (PIE) fund be established to create greater economic growth in the music sector. Description of Recommendation to Council The Music Commission’s newly formed responsibility of determining how managed and allocated to create economic growth in the commercial music sector via equity measures. The Systemic Racism Working Group seeks to address structural inequity and racial inequality in Austin’s music community through public discourse, distribution of funding, and policy change. By examining the development of Austin’s music economy through the lens of race, and the historic lack of support for our communities of color, the working group intends to provide recommendations to protect, repair, and build a more diverse and inclusive music scene. This committee is resolved to dive deeply into the various ways that race shapes policy and opportunity at all levels of the Austin Music Industry: venues, non-profits, festivals, etc.” Preservation (30%) - Enriching the Past Investment in the historic cultural heritage of Austin music via funding that supports BIPOC-led organizations, and individuals committed to preservation of the traditions and legacy of historically underserved communities through: funding, pulled from (50% of Live Music) HOT funds, can best be Systemic Racism Working Group will be charged with the PIE ● Educational workshops and presentations that pass the legacy to new generations ● Development of cultural heritage district infrastructure(s) ● Support for public Cultural Arts spaces (libraries, museums, etc) ● Public events that celebrate BIPOC cultural heritage Innovation (30%) - Envisioning the Future Investment in the innovation of traditional business models that have excluded BIPOC communities via funding that supports BIPOC-led organizations, and individuals committed to innovative and inclusive practices that build capacity in underserved communities through: 1 of 2 ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ● The incorporation of new media platforms/technology that develop the capacity of historically underserved communities and genres ● The development of infrastructure that empowers the creation and development of tech-based business models that …

Austin Music Venue Preservation EDI Overlay Background In passing several music and arts resolutions in the last six years, the City of Austin committed itself to being at the forefront of a national conversation about how music, arts and cultural organizations can and should reflect and embrace diversity in all the ways it is experienced and understood, in all communities across the city. In a follow-up report to the Omnibus Resolution that was passed by city council on March 3, 2016, the Mayor’s working group recommended the integration of arts, music and culture and equity, diversity, and inclusion in all policies, and as a core value across departments and operations. The Mayor’s working group noted the following: Despite great efforts to foster inclusion and diversity in City benefitted programming, we find that equity, diversity, and inclusion remains under emphasized in the arts/music/culture arena. The first set of Music and Creative Ecosystem Stabilization Recommendations from the June 2016 staff Omnibus report have limited mention of equity, diversity, and inclusion in their set of recommendations. We found difficulty in truly representing Austin’s diversity in the composition of our working groups. Moving forward, in these recommendations it is crucial that we approach implementation through an equity, diversity, and inclusion lens, applying a critical equity filter upon each recommendation prior to implementation. Further, we urge the City of Austin to adopt equity, diversity, and inclusion in all policies and as a core value across departments and operations along with music, arts, and culture. The initiation of these changes should include a timeline with metrics and goals that support the integration of equity, diversity, and inclusion as described by 2021. The challenges for a commercial music industry in Austin that is a portrait of inequality, in a city known as the most economically segregated in the U.S., are myriad. ● Communities of color, each facing unique barriers to opportunity, are underrepresented in the Austin music economy. ● The historical lack of representation of people of color in Austin music and systemic inequities inhibits participation, creating less access and a lack of ownership, professional networks and mentorship, audience and genre development, physical spaces and platforms to explore. ● The white dominant culture in Austin music has historically undervalued people of color and has blocked career pathways in live music, from performance to talent buying to event promoting. The last Austin Music Census showed that small percentages …

We recognize that gender is a primary determinant of social equity and therefore we begin the journey toward social equity also with this definition.” Any programs developed should include an equity overlay - including an acceptance of this Equity statement, criteria and process supporting it and capacity building opportunities embedded in the application process that furthers the equity mission and creates best outcomes and quality of life for all.

Purpose Specific purposes for the MVP should include the following: Improve quality of life  Prevention of iconic business closures   Economic development for small businesses  Culture/cultural retention & enhancement  Audience/workforce development.  Support Austin in fully-embracing its status as a music “world brand.” 3. Equity a. Racial "Racial Equity is the condition when race no longer predicts a person’s quality of life outcomes in our community. 1 of 4 The City of Austin recognizes that race is a primary determinant of social equity and therefore we begin the journey toward social equity with this definition. The City of Austin recognizes historical and structural disparities and a need for alleviation of these wrongs by critically transforming its institutions and creating a culture of equity." b. Gender “Gender Equity is the condition when gender no longer predicts a person’s quality of life outcomes in our community. We recognize that gender and sexism are particularly problematic in the Music Industry - including, but not limited to, venue ownership, frequency of gigs, income, and economic opportunities, as outlined in the 2015 Austin Music Census. We recognize that gender is a primary determinant of social equity and therefore we begin the journey toward social equity also with this definition.” Any programs developed should include an equity overlay - including an acceptance of this Equity statement, criteria and process supporting it and capacity building opportunities embedded in the application process that furthers the equity mission and creates best outcomes and quality of life for all. *footnote 1 (see Addendum for Equity Guidelines. Overlay available on Request.) built into final doc Funding Funding sources for the MVP should be deliberated and …
