 Summer Talk: Women in Music

亞裔女性在音樂產業

#TaiwaneseBaes

Showing your creative and your talent is not always easy. Sometimes, you need to work hard and get some good luck. For Asian women, they further face many unbelievable struggling and challenges from this social structure.

The challenges include the culture conflicts among the different population or some discrimination labels on women. We are glad to have these four Asian women from the Music industry. They all are well known and having achievements.

However, there are many challenges in this process. Their stories and experiences inspired many people; we sincerely invite you to join this panel and share your thoughts.

 

創作這件事,發生在文學、發生在音樂、發生在各個領域。而在音樂創作的世界中,他是怎樣被激盪的?當你是一位女性音樂工作者,在音樂產業中的悠遊,從外人來看是如此才華洋溢,但是每個夜晚,苦思靈感,這背後有多少不為人知的秘密與心酸?

困境和挑戰生命的奮鬥,發生在那些已成名的人身上,其實也發生在你、我,每個人身上,每個人都用自己生命去驗證去發生著。當你是一位女性音樂工作者,在音樂產業中的悠遊,從外人來看是如此光鮮亮麗,卻可能因為性別的關係遇到許多辛酸故事,這這背後有多少不為人知的秘密與心酸?

但是面對心酸與困境,我們邀請到四位亞裔女性,他們在這音樂產業中是怎樣去面對這些挑戰跟困境,他們是怎樣激盪他們的生命歷程與靈感。我們歡迎你一起加入我們與這四位女性音樂人的的討論與對話之中。
