European Women* in Music aims to connect women by creating a forum for discourse, idea-sharing, mentoring and goal-setting, showcasing the strengths of women in the music industry, and equipping participants with tools to identify, withstand, and ultimately overcome inequality. It seeks additionally to perform an advisory role for external bodies, to work towards more gender inclusivity in the music industry.
During the course of our November conference, these aims will be tackled via discussions, talks, workshops, training sessions, activities and team-building exercises. Short consultancy sessions between participants, as well as long-term mentorships and “speed mentoring” will take place throughout the weekend. Showcases will take place in the evenings including concerts (mixed-genres) & club nights, featuring up-and-coming as well as established women artists, producers, DJs etc.
We’ll be updating this page soon, in the meantime feel free to get in touch with any questions or if you’re interested in joining our cause.
