Electronic Art Tackles Sexual Assault & Harassment

CURRENT Symposium: Dream of a New Future tackles sexual assault & harassment and brings together women and non-binary artists working in music and electronic art scene in Vancouver and beyond. This event is produced by local artists, Alexandra Chen, Ash Luk, Nancy Lee and Soledad Fatima Munoz.

Ultimately, producers of the event will create a report to share with the City of Vancouver with recommendations specifically on abuse of power in mixed media, and how to support survivors of gender-based violence, bridging the gap between cultural creators and the City. BWSS is thrilled to have been invited to be a part of this innovative event which creates space for women and non-binary artists to share their experiences, art and ideas.

The symposium takes place July 25th-29th in Vancouver and will feature music and art showcases as well as workshops, panels, and youth mentorships.

Sunday, July 29th BWSS Violence Prevention Coordinator, Rona Amiri, joins Stacey Forrester from Good Night Out (GNO) for a panel to discuss prevention and support post “Me Too”.
