Mark Grattan & Soriya Jabeen


Music for Social Change – Examining Current Discourses in Modern Music.

 UK based Safety In Music CIC will explore the social effects of music videos and lyrics which are violent and misogynistic. Co-founders Soriya Jabeen and international DJ/producer Mark EG will illustrate how such content influences those most vulnerable in society to carry out criminal action and gain wealth through exploitative means. They will evidence the impact on those most vulnerable, the victims, families, communities and societies as a whole. Their research evidence will draw from police crime data, Crown Prosecution Services (CPS), the Home Office, the Violence Reduction Unit (VRU), safeguarding, academia, think-tanks, communities, social action groups, case studies and social media data. Safety In Music CIC will also highlight any methodological challenges and issues that have arisen during their programmes. Finally, they will showcase their own ground-breaking work to demonstrate how music and video can be used as a vehicle for positive social change.
