Bystander Intervention for Show-Goers

bystander-intervention-facebook.png

In this bystander intervention workshop, you will learn everything you need to know to safely intervene and de-escalate a risky situation: from learning about the risk factors involved in sexual violence at shows and identifying situations that needs your help, to simple non-confrontational strategies on how to intervene. In this interactive workshop, we will also talk about challenging our own implicit biases, such as racism and ableism to better support members of our music community. Finally, we will have an opportunity to work through common scenarios to practice our bystander intervention skills and be ready to use our skills in our day-to-day lives.

About Project SoundCheck:

Project SoundCheck is a sexual harassment and assault prevention initiative. It is a joint creation of the Sexual Assault Network and the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women. We want to bring our festivals, venues, and community together to challenge bystander apathy; the tendency to ignore incidents of sexual harassment and assault in large group situations where people feel less responsibility for others or assume another person will intervene.

IMG_7215.jpg

Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Grace Marr is a singer and songwriter recognized for her RnB/Pop melodies and vibrant stage presence. Described as ‘Daniel Caesar and Joss Stone going out for coffee’, Grace has fallen in love with not only music but the magic of connecting with a room full of strangers. She has shared her music on stages such as RBC Bluesfest (Youth Ottawa - The Road To Bluesfest), CityFolk’s Marvest, and MEGAPHONO. She has also completed Royal Conservatory of Music certificates in Advanced Theory and Voice Level 8. Grace recently participated in the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition 6-week Emerging Artist Program and has also completed two songwriting programs in 2017 led by renowned publishing and music executive Judy Stakee (Sheryl Crow, Gavin DeGraw, Katy Perry). Grace hopes to further encourage creativity and collaboration among emerging artists, musicians, and songwriters by establishing safe spaces and sharing new perspectives on songwriting. She believes that with the right tools, anybody can write a song.

Jam It Out!

2016/2017 Alumnae Drop In Jam Sessions

In order to support our alumnae and their journeys of rock as well as those interested in jamming out or practicing, we are pleased to offer PWYC/by donation drop in, self-directed rehearsal time at our favourite jam zone, Capital Rehearsal Studios. A registered participant can practice on her own, with her  band, or we can match lone girls looking to jam with new bandmates on a case-by-case basis.

The sessions take place once a month on the third Saturday between 1PM and 5PM (unless otherwise noted). One hour slots are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Please note that these are self-directed sessions and not lessons. A Girls+ Rock Ottawa volunteer will be on site to help you get set up and for general questions but is not responsible for providing any guided content or lessons.

Eligibility

These sessions are limited to self-identified girls and those who identify as non-binary between the ages of  13-19.

As always our programs are by donation so if you can donate to us, please do!
