Race And Gender Equality In The Music Industry
We want to educate both youth and the public at large on the inequalities of race and gender in the music industry. Through panels and workshops linking activists with youth for education and discussion purposes we will create social media campaigns and event(s) to bring communities together. We hope our project leads to policy changes in our program, as well as policies and practices at local festivals and music based centres to create safer spaces for all youth to be participate.
