Conversations around representation and intersectionality in music have been increasingly in the spotlight. How do we as a music community create real and progressive change and equity in the industry? Join community members for a free panel discussion exploring current issues and tangible ways forward with a focus on gender, sexuality, ability, and the experiences of Black people, Indigenous people, People Colour, and the people who exist at those intersections.

The discussion will be facilitated by Uzoma Asagwara, a Winnipeg-based entrepreneur, registered psychiatric nurse, former member of the Premier's Advisory Council on education, poverty, and citizenship, and the founder of QPOC Winnipeg.

Presented by Manitoba Music and Big Fun, this panel discussion is part of January Music Meeting, which runs in conjunction with the Big Fun Festival, January 23-27. Find out more at
