When Punk Meets Hearing Wellness

Frank and Earmark Hearing Conservation were proud to participate in the inaugural production of the YallaPunk Conference and Festival in Philadelphia. YallaPunk brought the art and music, and Earmark brought the hearing wellness discussion to the audiences and artists, as well complimentary earplugs for everyone to enjoy the shows safely.

YallaPunk's stated goal was to "highlight creative accomplishments of MENA (Middle Eastern and Northern African) individuals and serve as a safe space forum for discourse about social issues." The three day event featured bands, poets, comedians and visual artists in an inclusive setting at several venues in the Fishtown neighborhood.


Special thanks to Rana Fayez and all the organizers for taking on such an ambitious and timely project, and to the venues that hosted the concerts - Johnny Brenda's and The Barbary.

With such a positive response from the audience and artists, we're motivated to bring the message of hearing wellness to many more concerts and venues in the future. Contact Earmark Hearing Conservation to discuss your event and stay tuned for more to come!
