Where Art the Women? is an inclusive, not-for-profit Community Interest Company project that aims to highlight, challenge and help address the gender imbalance on stages in the UK independent music scene with a collaborative mix of art, music, spoken word, film, workshops, discussion and information.
We will be taking the project on tour during Autumn 2022, with a launch party in the Spring, to showcase acts that include female performers as part of our immersive multimedia experience, with an onus on making it accessible for all.
Our long term goal is to actively encourage, and offer various support to:
i) female musicians and spoken word performers of all ages, with a focus on young women and those finding their feet
ii) independent venues, festivals and promoters to apply more gender balance to their bookings
iii) audiences who are used to male dominated shows to attend more gender balanced line-ups.
