consent, care, and bystander intervention in the electronic dance music community
About this Event
Datsik, Space Jesus, Bassnectar. How do we break the cycle? How do we rebuild community in a post-Bassnectar world? This online event, hosted by Good Night Out Vancouver, will explore the nuances of consent, power dynamics, and rape culture to give participants a better understanding of the spectrum of behavior that facilitates rape culture and how it subtly manifests in the electronic dance music community - from musicians taking advantage of power dynamics, to non-consensual groping, unsolicited comments about appearances, and a range of other behaviors that have been normalized. In this workshop, participants will learn how to challenge this paradigm by being an active bystander to promote consent culture at shows and beyond.
