In order to ensure that bookers keep gender parity top-of-mind while they’re booking, we would like to send a letter to emphasize the importance of booking women – and more than just a token woman or two, but something closer to equal representation – to the success of festivals and the music industry as a whole.
The aim is to write to them as a group and have many people in the music community sign it, women and allies, in order to bring the power of the community to support this idea.
This would be something that could be circulated to bookers, festival Artistic Directors, conference coordinators, etc.
It might work best as an online petition.
Are you interested in drafting a letter for this project? Please leave a comment below!
