A CELEBRATION WORKSHOP OF WOMEN IN MUSIC
PRS for Music has partnered with social enterprise Come Play With Me and community venue Leeds Music Hub to create a special free-to-attend day of discussion and celebration Women in Music on Sunday 14 October.
Panels on engineering, production, songwriting and the music industry, will see experts including Leeds singer-songwriter, Hannah Trigwell, PRS for Music Education & Outreach Manager, Claire Rose, Metronomy drummer and DJ, Anna Prior, and Producer of the Year 2018 (NMG Awards), Lauren Deakin Davies, share their experiences and offer attendees advice on how to further their own careers.
A wide variety of talks from the likes of Dr Rosemary Hill, Dr Hannah Bows, and PRS Foundation CEO, Vanessa Reed, will cover topics from sexual harassment and violence at festivals and gigs, to PRS Foundation’s Keychange and Women Make Music initiatives, with a workshop from Good Night Out also offering information on bystander intervention.
Leeds’ finest, Esme Bridie, TACAT and Bad Idea, will also be performing live at The Leeds Music Hub throughout the day, while local organisations Girl Gang, Her Music PR and Come Play With Me, as well as PRS for Music, will have stalls for attendees to find out more about them.
The day will be rounded off with a special screening of music documentary, ‘So, Which Band Is Your Boyfriend In?’, a film that explores the positive and not so positive experiences of women and non-binary people in the UK’s underground and DIY music scenes.
The event starts at 12.30 and runs throughout the day. Further details 0113 217 1853.
