PANEL IN ENGLISH
Gender Equality is a (unfortunately necessary) hot topic in the global music community. In Italy, for long time this has been given short shrift by the national music business, where executive positions and festival lineups seem predominately male. A change is necessary for the sake of developing the amazing talent existing and emerging within the industry and among the artists.
What’s the state of the art in Italy, as compared to the rest of the world? What’s the artist’s point of view?
Linecheck’s opening panel presents shesaid.so, just launched in Italy, Keychange and other networks and organizations that inspire, show alternatives and help to feature – in the end – talent, not gender.
