Stand with artists as they stand up for their rights
Presented by c3 – the Content Creators Coalition
Ad-based piracy is a direct attack on the livelihoods and art forms of today’s content creators. And the major tech players who sell ads to these websites make large-scale piracy possible. Artists have always been the ultimate free speech activists. That’s why we’re asking Google and other large tech corporations to stand with us and stop brokering ads to piracy sites. It’s not about censorship. It’s about making sure current and future generations of artists can continue to create.
October’s concerts highlight the creativity and impact of artists across the spectrum from indie to the avant-garde as they stand up for their rights in the digital domain. Using music as a language of unification, we invite the artist community and the general public to listen, watch and engage.
As this is a fundraising event, Roulette Membership discounts will not be available for this performance. With any questions please call Perry Huntoon, Membership Coordinator, at (917) 267-0368.
