CHECK YOUR HEAD will be a panel discussion on the issues surrounding Mental Health in the Music industry. Inspired by the current light being shed on all things Mental Health in our community we want to steer that beacon of hope toward the Music Industry. Heavy responsibilities of artists, venues, promoters, festival crew, tour management present these over-worked and over-looked humans with stress, alcohol/drug addiction, sleep deprivation, low-pay/long-hours the list goes on. And we need to talk about it.
Discussions on where the issues lie, and how things have moved towards such long-hours and gruelling work, will give our audience a clear understanding of what the issues are and how they come about. From here we can discuss solutions for how we can improve mental health within the Industry, how we can make a shift from the current status quo - For example, state legislation changes, new venue regulations, contractual agreements for touring acts, etc.
