Brighter Sound Creative Residency

Keri Sinclair

To kick off the year-long celebrations for our 40th birthday, Spirit Studios has partnered with Brighter Sound to host their 5-day residency at the end of month for women and non-binary musicians.

Brighter Sound is a creative music charity based in Manchester, and have delivered a programme of exciting creative projects and events to support young and emerging musicians for almost 20 years. Connecting participants to inspirational artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Imogen Heap, and Bugzy Malone, Brighter Sound are also a founder organisation of the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England.

As venue sponsors for this year’s creative residency, we will be hosting a group of 16-25 year old women and non-binary musicians as they come together to take creative inspiration from Delia Derbyshire and create their own ‘Electric Storm’.

This is an exciting beginning to a year-long celebration of Spirit Studios, and the work and vision we’ve shared with you for the past 40 years. Keep an eye on this page for more updates about this exciting event, and keep an eye on our social for updates on more celebrations later this year!
