WOMEX – the World Music Expo – took place for the first time in 1994 and has developed into one of the largest conferences in the global music scene. As music moves not only analogically but also digitally, WOMEX is for the first time a partner of the re: publica and will accompany us in the re: connecting Europe to Dublin and Thessaloniki. Here, you will learn about the role music plays in the digital age.
