Following on from Black Out Tuesday and the events that surrounded it, PRS for Music is inviting its members to participate in a series of virtual listening circles. 

The sessions will be facilitated by Sonia Meggie and Marvin Aristotle from London-based social enterprise Inspirational YOU and will explore issues related to race and culture that are typically avoided within the music industry.

The objective is to stimulate and facilitate honest, constructive and respectful discussions on what it means to be anti-racist and what sustainable steps are needed to tackle inequality. The sessions have been designed to involve PRS members and employees in order to harness their ideas and feedback.

The outputs of these conversations will help to inform PRS for Music’s Diversity and Inclusion approach and strategy.  

There will be three 90-minute sessions: 

Monday 5 October – 1pm – 2:30pm (all members welcome) 
Tuesday 6 October – 10am – 11:30am (all members welcome) 
Wednesday 7 October – 7pm – 8:30pm (for Black, Asian and minority ethnic members only)  

If you’re a PRS for Music member and would like to attend one of these sessions, please fill out the listening circle survey linked.
