‘Creating Spaces’ Residency

Keri Sinclair

music residency

As part of our mission to make music education more accessible and inclusive, we have launched our very first in-house residency ‘Creating Spaces’ – for music creators, makers and producers across Greater Manchester who identify as women* or non-binary.

Our 5-week residency will provide a safe space for 5 creatives to push their artistic boundaries, develop their identities as artists and grow as collaborators.

‘Creating Spaces’ will take place within our studios in Manchester, two evenings a week between 19 July – 20 August 2021.

Throughout the course of the residency, attendees will work with established artists, producers and engineers within the industry and take part in a series of creative, mentoring and confidence building workshops, culminating in a virtual performance.

The virtual performance will be live streamed on Reform Radio from our Charlie Jones Live Venue on 20 August 2021.

Lead Artists:


Ruby Tingle 

Kelsey Brooks



Natasha Nur
