BREAKING DOWN RACIAL BARRIERS - WHAT WE HEARD AND WHAT'S NEXT?
Speakers: Ian Andre Espinet and David 'Click' Cox
Last year ECMA presented the Breaking Down Racial Barriers roundtable on anti-Black racism in the East Coast music industry, with the goal of raising awareness and understanding of the barriers faced by Black artists and music industry professionals in the region. One year later, we reconvene to share the findings of those conversations and present actionable strategies so that attendees can start to make impactful, measurable change.
You are welcome to attend in person if you will be on site for the 2022 ECMAs in Fredericton, or join online for this free event. If you would like to join online, you can RSVP by clicking here.
