At The Power of Disbelief, ft. Mary Henriquez, Izy Coffey, Heather Woods, and Hailey Magee, EBASS shed light on the gender disparity in the Boston music scene. In 2015, fewer than 20% of all performers booked at Cambridge music venues were women.
We want to do more than raise awareness about this disparity. We want to take action to change it. We wrote an Open Letter to Local Bookers, urging them to "Think Before They Book" and make gender representation a priority in 2016.
At the show, the open letter got over 80 signatures. Now, we need to prep this letter for distribution.
Join EBASS Volunteers on Sunday, April 10th to prep our Open Letter for sending. We'll be writing hand-written notes to each local booker, preparing the signed letters, hand-addressing envelopes, and putting these Open Letters in the mail to over 20 bookers and venues in the Cambridge/Somerville scene.
Location: iYo Bistro, 234 Elm Street, Somerville MA
Time: Sunday, April 10th, 3:00 - 4:30 pm
Who's Invited: EBASS Members and Volunteers
