Being in a band is one thing, but being a woman in a band is a different thing altogether. More and more women are taking up space in the male-dominated scene and owning it. It may seem like the issue of inclusivity is solved once you recruit a girl to play in your band, but often it makes matters even more complex—Microaggressions, objectification and harassment are only a few of the many concerns of being the girl in the band. How do women’s experiences differ from men’s? How often do people treat the players how they expect to be treated? How do we work together to create a safe and inclusive space for everyone?
Be with the talks this Saturday, 15:00 – 18:00 at Butfirst Coffee, Darmawangsa with our guests Rega Ayundya, Smita Kirana, Fathia Izzati and Ravinda Wibowo. See you there!
