Our sisters at The World is Listening – a project devoted to supporting women musicians – have a brilliant event coming up on Sunday 27 September.
Here’s the blurb…
They bring their second public discussion in Bristol to Fyfe Hall, upstairs in the Trinity Centre, debating the topic ‘Female is not a genre’, lead by 3 excellent guest speakers and our host, TWIL co-founder, Emma Hooper. The talk will be followed by an open forum where you can ask questions of our panel. Scroll below for more details on each speaker.
Expect a hands on discussion looking at the culture of musicians being labelled ‘female’ (‘female drummer’, ‘female singer’, ‘female songwriter), the sexism behind the craze (as Caitlin Moran says, to figure out if some sexism is happening at you, ask if the same applies to men), and also the benefit, need or desire to identify as female in the music industry, or just, as a human.
8-11pm DJ set with Miss Radida!
