Hello, community people! I'm glad to see Sound Diplomacy linking us up all over the world after they helped Vilnius Municipality so much with analysis and recommendations while I was a City Councillor.
Following their advice, we now have a Night Economy Commission in the municipality and I founded an independent organisation Vilnius Night Alliance to advocate for nightlife businesses and performers.
My main job is now directing Music eXport Fund, an NGO helping musicians collaborate across borders. Our main partner is the international music company state51. I am also writing a book "Nightify your city" as a guide to activists and advocates who want to get things going in their own cities.
I am happy to answer any questions about the Vilnius night economy and of course you are all welcome to visit and hook up for a city tour whenever travel restrictions allow!
