Woman, Life, Freedom
Join us at a concert in support of the protests in Iran, featuring an all-star line-up of Iranian and international musicians, singers and poets.
Following the death in police custody of 22-year-old Kurdish Iranian woman, Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, women and girls in Iran have been taking to streets across the country, demanding change. Their protests started as a call to overturn mandatory religious dress codes but quickly inspired a popular rebuke against the ruling political system.
This concert, which will be held on November 16 at London's Royal Festival Hall, is a show of solidarity with the protesters as they continue demanding basic rights and liberties; keeping the spotlight on their efforts and bravery.
The line-up includes Emel Mathlouthi, Faramarz Aslani, Golnar Shahyar, Kelsey Lu, Lafawndah, Lianne La Havas, London Contemporary Orchestra, Rostam Mirlashari and Sakina Teyna, with more to be announced.
Please note that this is a non-profit concert to keep public and media attention on Iran's protests. The ticket sales will barely cover the costs of this project which includes the venue, technicians, security, artists travel and accommodation. If there are any proceeds, they are going directly to a relevant charity, which will be announced in due course.
