Tune Up! Raising the Bar on Gender Parity In Music
This interactive conversation with music sector experts will look at gender equality initiatives in Europe and assess their potential to grow in the US. How divided or connected are states in the US compared to countries in the EU, and what responsibility do cities/funders have? What is the role of the commercial music sector and how has that been harnessed in Europe? What organizations are becoming more involved in social justice, and does it work?
