We raise the voice for an equal music life

By on February 6, 2018

The fall’s Metoo announcement has given rise to both acting and talking about sexism, harassment and violations from education to professional life. As part of this work, the Royal Music School (KMH) and Stiftelsen Vattnäs Konsertlada invite to a public conversation on February 14th.

For an equal music life – from education to professional life
– a conversation about sexism, harassment and violations

12: 15-13: 45
Kungasalen, Royal College of Music (KMH)
Valhallavägen 105 in Stockholm
Subway station: Stadium

Free entrance

How do students and pupils who are women experience their situation? How do we completely eliminate harassment and sexism in educational situations and workplaces? Can we learn from each other and get an eye on problems that earlier have passed us by?

The fall’s Metoo announcement has given rise to both acting and talking about sexism, harassment and violations from education to professional life. KMH is now raising the issue in various ways in terms of the university’s working methods, course contents and competence development. The work also includes conducting continuous conversations with different parties in society to develop further solutions and define how the work will proceed.

Stiftelsen Vattnäs Konsertlada therefore, in collaboration with KMH and Postkodlotteriet Kulturstiftelse, organizes a conversation with the audience about sexism, harassment and violations in the music industry and on our music education.

The panel at a conversation February 14 included

Ebba Witt-Brattström Professor of Literature Science

Anna Larsson Court singer

Cecilia Rydinger Alin Principal KMH

Joakim Milder Professor in Improvisation and Ensemble

Lars Annersten Project Manager, The Performing Arts Museum

Gabriel Lindborg Principal Musical Conservatory Falun

Petra Assio Student Union Chairman KMH

Moderator is Kattis Ahlström.

– We hope this will be a lively and solution-oriented debate and a constructive conversation involving teachers, professors, music students, conductors, composers, singers, journalists and, of course, the audience, says court singer Anna Larsson, artistic leader for Vattnäs konsertlada.

– I look forward to a discussion with high ceilings and with many angles, where representatives of, for example, pre-music education, active music and society in general, contribute. Through constructive talks, we continue with our continued equality work at KMH, contributing to an equal and equal working life for our musicians and music teachers, says KMH Principal Cecilia Rydinger Alin.

The conversation will be the third in Stiftelsen Vattnäs Konsertladas conversation series of “opera sexism” that has been carried out with the support of the Postkodlotteriet Kulturstiftelsen. The two were previously performed in Vattnäs and at Västerås Theater.
