After nearly two years of low-key engagement, RE:IMI (Race Equality: In Music Industry) is formally being launched.
This formal launch, hosted by Dawn Butler MP, brings to the fore RE:IMI (Race Equality: In Music Industry), a collective made up of music industry practitioners, musicians, producers, academics, historians, community activists and equality practioners, which has a focus on 'race' within music industry diversity/equality discourse and practice.
At a time when 'race' and ethnicity issues have cropped up, as evidenced by the #BritsSoWhite trend, and 'race' sometimes does not feature in diversity/equality remits, RE:IMI, which is a BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress initiative, aims to work with stakeholders within and without the music industry by highlighting 'race' and ethnicity deficits. And also pursue initiatives such as British Artists Against Racism (BAAR).
Join us, as we set out our stall, and also find out what others, such as the BPI, the UK Music Diversity Task Force and BECTU, are doing to address 'race' equality and diversity.
Please note: Because of the level of demand expected, registration is on an expression of interest basis - successful applicants will be informed, including room details, closer to the launch.
