Please get in touch if you've experienced harassment

We are investigating the scale of sexism, sexual harassment and abuse in the music industry, and seeking to identify where the issues and perpetrators are so that we can be a catalyst for change.

We have therefore set up an email account - safespace@themu.org - to provide a safe space for all musicians to share instances of sexism, sexual harassment and sexual abuse that have occurred in the music industry.

All emails are treated in the strictest confidence and no action will be taken on your behalf without your prior consent.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse, we would encourage you to speak to one of the following organisations. They can provide support such as counselling and signposting of specific services to assist you in recovery and advise on reporting the incident to the police should you choose to:

  • Sexual Assault Referral Centre – dial 111 to find the nearest Sexual Assault Referral Centre. They can provide immediate support and advice, including medical examinations and tests, and will not go to the police until you decide if you want to or not.
  • Rape Crisis
  • Victim Support - 08 08 16 89 111
  • Galop (LGBT+) – 0207 704 2040
  • Survivors UK (men)
