Facing Forward: Centering Disability across the Music Industry

June 17, 2021, @ 1 PM CT


We partnered with Global Toronto to present Centering Disability at their virtual conference from June 14-18.

Many individuals in the music industry have expressed a desire for a post-pandemic return to “normal”, without taking a pause to acknowledge that “normal” wasn’t working for everyone. This panel will feature a conversation followed by breakout discussions. Learn why centering disability as we make plans to rebuild is key to creating a more equitable music industry ecosystem. This panel offers concrete calls to action and ways in which you as an artist, presenter, or organization can enact necessary change.
