The next Young Guns Network (YGN) event will explore how artists use music to raise awareness of social issues and create social change.
The session will gather a panel of experts from across the media industry to discuss what happens when artists get involved in politics and campaigning, and the pitfalls of using music in activism.
They will look at the anti-racist campaigns of the seventies right through to 2017’s Grime4Corbyn movement.
Panellists include Becka Hudson, a Grime4Corbyn team member, Pascale Frazer-Carroll from Change.org and Rock Against Racism joint founder Roger Huddle.
The event takes place on 29 November from 6.30pm to 9.30pm at Tileyard Studios, London.
