Event description

Description

90% of British women report their first experience with harassment before age 17.*

Hack A Heckle (HAH) is a social action campaign that’s using the power of music to challenge gender-based harassment in Bristol. The campaign is run by a collective of musicians, creatives and activists aged 18-25, with the support of Knowle West Media Centre’s Change Creators: XLR Collective leadership programme.

Hack a Heckle and Knowle West Media Centre invite you to join them on Monday 25 September from 6.30-8.30pm to hear more about the campaign findings and celebrate the launch of the debut HAH EP!

The event will take place at Knowle West Media Centre (Leinster Avenue, BS4 1NL) and will feature live music, a presentation of Hack a Heckle’s findings so far, and details of their amazing seven-month journey on the Change Creators programme, which has taken them on a residential in Barcelona, seen them campaigning on the streets, and linked them up with Bristol Zero Tolerance, Safe Gigs For Women, Rife Magazine and many more.

Pick up a bag of exclusive Hack A Heckle treats, including the debut EP, meet the group and find out what they’re planning to do next...
