GRiZ just further cemented himself as one of the most inclusive and supportive artists in dance muisc. He recently announced on his social media that at GRiZMAS In July, his team will debut the Harmony Project.
The Harmony Project is a safe space created to support harm prevention and drug safety in partnership with Dance Safe and Good Night Out Vancouver. The Harmony Project will be, according to GRiZ, a loud and colorful booth where ravers can get education or assistance in a situation they feel unsafe.
The Harmony Project Manifesto emphasizes looking after others, protecting and respecting each other, keeping consent at the forefront, and telling either venue security or the Harmony Project team if you see something of concern.
GRiZ stated in the Instagram post, “Drug-related medical incidents and sexual assault are both pervasive and much too common in our world, and I want to do everything I can to mitigate that. Y’all are my fam. Let’s all do our part to keep each other safe.”
Good Night Out Vancouver’s goal is to prevent sexual assault and harassment at venue and festival spaces, an unfortunate prevalence for many attendees. Dance Safe provides drug testing kits, drug safety education, and hearing protection to music lovers.
