The performance of #PirateRadio proposes a live performance in the format of a roundtable hosted by Shola Cole aka Pirate Jenny (Mount Royal '15) and First Mate/Collaborator Mark Gunnery.
This discussion will hold space within a sonic background of collected sounds and focus on the ideas of activism, the #LivesMatter Movement, race, and equality within artistry. Conversation will regard race along lines of access, music and culture – especially women of color on so many expressive front lines of activism. Concepts and connections within the history of piracy, borders and boundaries will potentially be explored in past, current and future strategies of artistic and socio-cultural equality. Confirmed guests include Fields Festival Artists, GreyDolf, Abdu Ali and Sheila Gaskins
