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.
What is involved?
Throughout the residency, the attendees will:
- Work alongside industry professionals and well-established artists, including IORA Music, Ruby Tingle, Kelsey Brooks, Oneda, DR MYSTERY and Natasha Nur
- Develop their personal and professional skills as creatives
- Collaborate with other creatives to work towards a live performance
- Develop their skills using software and hardware
*Our use of the words ‘women’ or ‘woman’ are inclusive of anyone who identifies as a woman, including transgender women.
