#OurMusicMyBody: Safety, Sexism, & Harassment in the Music Scene
Saturday 9/17 3:00-4:30 PM; Beat Kitchen 2100 W. Belmont, Chicago
Sexual harassment in the music scene has been widely ignored for much too long. As partners, Between Friends and RVA have come together to bring awareness to this issue through the #OurMusicMyBody campaign.
We cannot have these conversations alone. In order to actively involve more of the music community in these discussions, we are hosting a panel featuring activists, musicians, and members of the local music scene. We hope that through honest, accessible, community conversations, we can create a movement where people feel supported and safe at music festivals and concerts. Please join us.
