Miista x City Slang | Olga Ellinghaus & Laura Villasenin
Refuge Worldwide's Richard Akingbehin discusses electronic music's relationship to resistance and activism with journalists Mariana Berezovski and Rachel Almeida. They will each share a favourite piece of electronic protest music and discuss the numerous complex issues surrounding the topic. For example: do DJs have an obligation to be politically engaged? Are dance floors becoming too escapist to be a suitable space for activism? Are community hubs, like radio stations, replacing the dance floor as the centre of electronic music's resistance?
