Safe Spaces: Creating an Anti-oppressive Culture of Consent in the Music Industry
- June 22, 2021 - Showtime: 6:00pm
Presented in partnership with Red Tent Winnipeg.
In this session, we will examine the ways gender-based and sexualized violence arises in the music industry. We will explore how artists, venues, festivals, labels, etc. can address violence when it occurs. Further, we will define consent and how to pro-actively build an anti-oppressive culture of consent within the industry. We acknowledge that all forms of oppression are linked and therefore this work must be grounded in anti-colonial and anti-racist values. Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of promising practices in addressing sexualized violence and creating anti-oppressive safer spaces.
