This event is geared to engage , musicians, venue owners, local businesses, event planners, tech developers, writers and music fans of all ages. How do social networks help build a stronger cultural community in our city.  What are the tools we are using?  How should we as a community engage each other on a more meaningful basis.  How do musicians transform this meaningful engagement into a greater fanbase.  Who in DC is having the most success doing this?  How does each part of the cultural community play a role in our social network?
