IMPALA joins the wider music community to respect #BlackOutTuesday for #BlackLivesMatter. The initiative is the music sector taking a stance and reflecting, following the unacceptable death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. 

Helen Smith, Executive Chair of IMPALA commented: “IMPALA has postponed its members meeting in solidarity with those who suffer violence and discrimination. This level of solidarity in the music sector‘s stance is a first. It is a very loud call for decision makers to take proper action.
