When Resident Advisor, Mixcloud, shesaidso, and AIM (Association of Independent Music) are involved with an event, you can be guaranteed of professional quality. When the line-up boasts superstar speakers in the likes of BBC Radio 1 presenter B.Traits, model and DJ Munroe Bergdorf, Fay Milton of band Savages, and Abbey Raymonde from indie label Bella Union; you’re assured of a dedicated panel with something incredibly powerful to say.
For a taste of B.Traits insight into the industry, revisit her CTC Talks interview here.
When that event is an all day and night fundraiser, with all funds raised to be donated to the United Nations Women National Committee UK’s ‘HeForShe’ campaign, topped off with performances from Peggy Gou, Needs’ founder Bobby Pleasure, plus special guests to be revealed on the night; it crosses into the realms of unmissable. At a time when the movement towards gender equity, equal representation, and awareness of the challenges that cis- and trans- females face in our industry has never been more important, CTC is excited to support this essential gathering of some of the most influential and forward thinking women and men out there.
Check out Peggy Gou’s recent EP drop to get hyped for the event – ‘It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)’, featured on this week’s RA Podcast.
Oval Space plays host to the panel discussions, a live recording of RA’s Exchange podcast, plus the performances after. With a vinyl & digital EP release featuring Peggy Gou, Juju & Jordash, plus bespoke artwork from The Line Girl to boot; our hats are off to the organisers for putting together such a killer programme.
Needs x UN Women present HeForShe at Oval Space is on Sunday 11th March, 12pm til 12am. You can cop tickets here.
