Event Details

They set out in search of themselves, instead they found the voices of 200 million Chinese migrant workers.

用歌聲吶喊、以文藝維權、為2億工人唱歌。

 

Once a music teacher, Sun Heng quit his stable job to look for a more fulfilling life. He roamed across provinces, performing on the streets while working odd jobs. Stories of the destitute inspired countless songs.

While performing in an underground tunnel, he met Xu Duo, a name that means plentiful, but a young man who owned very little outside of his guitar.

They were convinced that migrant workers need a spiritual life and together they formed The New Workers Art Troupe.

In the next 10 years, Duan Yu, Sun Yuan and Jiang Guoliang joined them, singing for and on behalf of China's 200 million migrant workers. They released 5 albums, performed over 500 shows for over 100 thousand workers. 

With their music royalties, they established a migrant children's school, a workers' cultural museum and facilities that offered other services. They became the voices of migrant workers and an inspiration to all.

 

來自浙江的“北漂”許多,立志要做搖滾青年。為了實現理想,他替人送水、沿街發廣告,用打散工賺來的錢買了一把二手吉他,在北京的地下通道唱自己寫的歌。

原是河南一名普通音樂老師的孫恆,在顛沛流離的打工生活中創作了一首首膾炙人口的民謠歌曲。

機緣巧合之下,許多遇到了孫恆,開始了十年一起唱作的生涯。

打工者需要文化生活。就是這樣的一個念頭,他們幾個在2002年勞動節創辦了「新工人藝術團」。

同樣是“北漂”青年的段玉、孫元和姜國良也帶著相同的理念加入了藝術團。他們“用歌聲吶喊、以文藝維權、為打工者唱歌”。

自成立以來, 新工人藝術團 已出版五張專輯,在工地上義演五百余次,觀眾超過十萬人。他們以唱片版稅建立打工子弟學校、打工文化藝術博物館、社區劇場等綜合服務機構,讓基層勞動者有尊嚴地生活。

Half The Sky Public Education

Half The Sky Public Education is a collective committed to empowering women, especially vulnerable women, in China.

Through innovative uses of the media, technology and other platforms for public education, we try to provide the most vulnerable populations with information and knowledge to prevent situations of exploitation, such as human trafficking, domestic abuse, sexual violence and labour rights violations. We also work to change public perceptions and attitudes towards women.

We are an official partner of UNWomen China.

半邊天公益是一個致力於服務中國弱勢婦女的團體。我們的目標是用知識幫助她們更好地保護自己,平等地追求理想。

我們主要通過多媒體開展公眾教育,為弱勢群體提供相關信息和知識,提高她們防范家暴、性暴力、勞力剝削、性別歧視等問題的意識。我們的另一個目標是提高婦女的社會地位,改變大眾對婦女的傳統印象和態度。

半邊天公益是聯合國婦女署中國辦公室的官方合作伙伴。
