Mixmag Presents: Shifting the Diversity Dial
14:30 - 15:30
The Dylan (D2 Panel Room) | Keizersgracht 384, Amsterdam
Diversity and inclusivity in dance music have become buzzwords in recent times, but the overwhelming majority of the world's highest paid DJs are still white men and many in the scene seem to have forgotten that the culture we cherish and celebrate was created by marginalised groups as a form of self expression, tolerance and acceptance.
Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective are working to raise awareness and take positive action to address the situation through a mentorship program to help artists from under-represented or excluded backgrounds, as well as thought-leadership and other awareness initiatives.
Are you ready to help shift the dial?
