This panel discussion will address the issue of sexual harassment in the arts and Irish music, with a focus on the self-employed status of musicians. Our participants will explore the rights and responsibilities of employers, promoters, agents, sound engineers, teachers, producers and performers of all genders, and provide unique insight into their own experiences within their respective disciplines.
