#notON Survey

Festival goers were surveyed about their perception of safety in live music venues, as part of the broader #notON campaign at BIGSOUND 2015. Now online, the community is invited to complete this short survey, which will assist in gaining an insight into the issue of violence against women in venues and entertainment precincts. The #notON campaign was officially launched in Brisbane in April 2015 as a grassroots initiative and has since been embraced by hundreds of artists, venues, festivals, media and countless business and industry organisations. With your help in completing this, you will bring us closer to having a positive and tangible outcome.
