Needs x UN Women present HeForShe
Needs (not-for-profit) event and label series teams up with fellow non profit UN Women on their HeForShe arts week with an all day event on Sunday 11th March using culture to encourage and explore the challenging topic of gender equality.
Taking place at London culture hub Oval Space, the event brings together engaging panel discussions, networking and DJ & live performances with all funds raised donated to UN Women for their gender equality campaign. In association with shesaidso, Resident Advisor and AIM (Association of Independent Music), Needs invites electronic music luminaries to discuss and perform with the hope of creating real change for both men and women in the industry.
Needs believes in people. The concept is to use music as a medium to spread love, unity and the idea of giving back. Promoting harmony and togetherness rather than isolation and estrangement, each release and accompanying event will act as a support stream to various issues within society such as mental health, homelessness and equality.
UN Women was launched in 2015 by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon and UN Women Global Ambassador Emma Watson, with the aim of engaging men and boys in conversations and encouraging the entire population to take action for equality now.
HeForShe is a global campaign that takes place annually from International Women’s Day on 8th March until 15th March. In 2017 HeForShe held over 40 events from lighting the London Eye with Gillian Andersen and Jennifer Nadal to events at famous theatres and venues including The Roundhouse, The British Museum and The Wallace Collection among others.
