Nap Girls: Dance Music's Woke Girl Gang
Life is a Festival Podcast 025:
Abi Getto & Liz Garard (Nap Girls)
"If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." - Emma Goldman, 1931
Abi Getto and Liz Garard are two co-founders of Nap Girls, a membership-based nonprofit that supports and empowers women and non-binary people in the music industry and beyond.
On the podcast we talk about how the iconic napping pose drew over 250 members to the collective. We discuss intersectionality and white feminism, how a girl gang metabolized #metoo, and how best to be an ally.
Liz Garard spent the last few years building apps for artists including Bieber and Ariana Grande. In 2019, Liz pivoted away from music to focus on sex worker advocacy and is now creating a platform for fair-trade pornography. She is currently a Social Entrepreneurship graduate student at USC's Marshall School of Business.
Abi Getto is a feminist, DJ, and artist manager. She currently works with the music collective Seven20.
