From playlists to festival bills to radio, can focusing on ‘quotas’ ever move beyond tokenism to create pathways for real change? 

Barriers within the music industry have created a need to address the imbalance that exists for certain groups of people over others. First Nations artists globally continue to experience a lack of representation within the music sector and this issue is only at the beginning stages of being addressed. Through reflection on how far we have really come, data and lived experience, this panel will examine how the music industry can ‘pay the rent’ using the tools it currently has.
