2018 is a time to celebrate diversity by smashing the glass ceilings in our music industry. A grassroots structure has emerged creating a proliferous faction to reflect our constant ever changing terrain of Canadian music, sending an updated message: today is a time for inclusivity.
Featuring an intersectional lineup of local artists: headlining is the genre smashing talents of Laydy Jams, followed by the intoxicating sound of Kristi Lane Sinclair, to the soul driving sound of FRANKIIE, to the beautiful sound of Douse, to the gracefulness of Kristen Ludwig, and opening with the passion of Anya. All hosted by two Mama Lionesses, Chelsea D.E. Johnson and Lola Lush, local veterans of the music scene.
Plus, Rose Water Poet, performer, arts and social justice educator, Amal Rana will weave together a community narrative across cultures in a keynote speech, presented with support from Indian Summer Festival Society, about ‘Intersectional Feminism’.
Before the showcase, #BrokenGlass is hosting a FREE daytime workshop series, with panel discussions about: how to maximize your music revenues, diversity in production, as well as, how to create change with Intersectional Practices.
