The lack of gender and cultural diversity reflected by the larger Toronto music industry has been a hot topic of late. Ad hoc conversations around these issues have taken place at recent panels and forums focused on topics such as venue closures, noise bylaws, the media etc. However, there have been few opportunities to deal with these issues head on and explore how inequities can be addressed.
Small World Music and Polyphonic Ground, in partnership with Lula Music & Arts Centre, MusicOntario, City of Toronto, Music Canada Live and Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO) will host a series of industry events to tackle these big topics about diversity in the live music industry. At these events, we want to hear from you about your experiences, insights, questions and possible strategies for change.
To ensure we are tackling the right topics, we want to know what topics are most important for discussion over the next year. Please take a few minutes to provide us with your input by Friday August 11th at 5pm.
All individual responses will remain confidential. Should you decide to provide your contact info to join our newsletter, confidentiality will still be maintained.
If you have any questions or feedback about our survey, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
