Working in music?

Read on.

The Oh Yeah Music Centre, Belfast writes:

Calling all women in music to participate in the ‘Women’s Work’ photocall at Oh Yeah Music Centre [15-21 Gordon St, Belfast] on April 8 at 4:30pm.

Whatever your contribution to our music community we want you in on this, so we are calling all musicians, bands, producers, programmers, curators, djs, promoters, managers, engineers, educators, marketing, pr and media, facilitators, mentors, festival teams and more.

We need 100+ attendees to better our 2017 attempt, which was a lot of fun and a proud endorsement of all the incredible women blazing a trail in our scene.

Houben Centre, Belfast.

The Building Common Ground event organised by the John and Pat Hume Foundation.

Via Belfast Live:

One of those attending the event said: “The event kicked off and all of a sudden Simon Coveney’s security came up and he left.

“A guy was outside who’d been badly shaken up who said that his van was hijacked and the van is in the car park now.

“A van was driven into the car park at the chapel grounds and police are all there now.”

Further to anti covid response measures appearing on advertising screens at Belfast’s Castlecourt shopping centre and Newtownabbey’s Abbey Centre over the weekend…

via Belfast Telegraph:

Alliance councillor Danny Donnelly criticised the billboards. He condemned reports of “anti-vaccine passport messages being promoted on multiple screens in [the Abbey Centre].” He continued: “This is undermining public health response to Covid and should be turned off ASAP.”

He said reports of similar messaging in Castlecourt was “Very concerning“. “It would appear that these ad spaces have been booked by a lobby group that is bent on undermining public health messages on Covid,” he said.

Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson said the messages were “absolutely shocking“. He said they were “putting the lives of shop workers and others at risk by encouraging this message”.

Castlecourt Shopping Centre has been contacted for a response, as has Big Brother Watch.

More than 5,000 mostly unmasked, socially sardined ‘revellers’ at a concert by James Arthur (top) and Cork’s LYRA (pic 2) in the open air, without restrictions. This was the second event – following Tom Jones last night – in a series at Custom House Square that will attract over 30,000 music fans during the next few weeks.


Our day will come.
