For the second year in a row the Oslo World is collaborating with The Art of Balance on our seminar program. The Art of Balance is an association of some 40 Norwegian organisations that work towards continuous progress with regards to gender equality and diversity in music. We believe in changes through practical work for equality of status, increasing of awareness, in concrete measures and efforts, mapping of the field, recruitment, mentorship, and education.
With panelists from Iran, France, Sri Lanka, Ukraine and Argentina, this seminar will facilitate on global insights on how female artists overcome different dynamics of censorship and empower themselves through music. Even though there will be a special focus in countries where there exists specific restrictions that limit women’s ability to take part in culture, it will explore how women still face different micro-dynamics of censorship or self-censorship around the world.
