Music and Power: Intersectional Identities and Activism Through Music and Media

Presented by Morgan Paris Lanza


Throughout hxstory, music and media have been modes for shaping and expressing identity and experience. They are powerful tools for activism and advocacy. In this workshop, we will explore the idea of identity through the lens of intersectionality and look at influential artists throughout hxstory and their contributions to anti-racism/anti-oppression movements. We will explore ways to bring this legacy into the now, discussing artists who still use media as activism and advocacy. Participants will develop media literacy skills for analyzing and creating media.
