Has the music scene become the new paradigm of collaborative innovation? A sample of initiatives randomly picked on both side of the France-Belgium border seems to confirm this trend: concert venues, labels, federations, artistic exchanges… All of which involved in inspired and inspiring projects. These will be at the heart of our discussion and the set of future approaches.
