From Artists to Activists: The Role of the Music Industry in Enacting Real Change
October 14, 2022, 8:00:00 PM
While many artists use their voices to support causes they are passionate about, some, like hip hop artist FRZY, choose to go beyond simply speaking out and search for ways they can make a greater impact. This panel will explore how artists and non-profit organizations can partner in truly integrated ways to affect meaningful change. Our leading experts will examine the many ways causes are supported by the Activist Artists Management roster (Bob Weir, Michael Franti, The Lumineers) and FRZY’s ongoing partnerships with WhyHunger’s successful “Artists Against Hunger & Poverty” program.
