SoundCheck Aotearoa is an action group formed in 2020 with the mission to foster a safe and inclusive music community for Aotearoa.
Through March, April and May 2021 we are seeking feedback from our music community – from artists and songwriters to sound engineers and crew, from educators and administrators to studio and venue workers and everyone in between – about the problems they see and what they think will help make a safer more inclusive music community.
Our first project is focussed on the prevention of and response to sexual harm, but we are also seeking comments, ideas and feedback on representation and inclusion issues more broadly.
In May, once we have feedback and ideas from across the music community, we will circulate our recommendations and draft work plan for the coming 12-18 months and offer another chance to discuss and give feedback then. Any feedback you provide in this form will be used to inform our work but it can be provided anonymously if you wish.
So, we would love to hear what you think!
