Empowerment: Women* in the music business – Safe Space #2
Sat 24 04, 14:00
After the first Safe Space at last year's c/o pop xoxo, the situation has not changed significantly in 2021: Women* are still severely underrepresented in the music industry. This is often also due to a lack of visibility. There are too few visible female role models. Women* are also significantly underrepresented in networking - in contrast to their male colleagues. The network musicNRWwomen* wants to change this. We invite you to join us for a second exchange in Safe Space and get to know two great women and role models: Amilli is a singer from Bochum and at the latest since she won the 1LIVE Krone in 2018 and the popNRW award in 2019, it is clear that she is no longer easy to imagine the music world without her. On her current EP, she also deals with feminist issues, among other things.
The radio, and television presenter Bianca Hauda (ARTE TWIST) is already there for the second time. She interviews Amilli and talks to her about empowerment, the life of a female musician, touring, networking, sexism, producing music herself and planned new releases. Afterwards you can ask your questions.
This Breakout Session is designed as a safe space and is for anyone who identifies as female as well as non-binary, trans, intergender, and gender fluid people.
This Breakout Session will be held in German and presented by musicNRWwomen* and Music Women* Germany and is hosted by popNRW, VUT West and c/o pop Convention as part of New Talent. This measure is implemented in cooperation with the Reeperbahn Festival as part of the project to strengthen Germany as a location for music culture and music business – Reeperbahn Festival, Diversity, Internationalization, Gender Equality, Excellence and Networking.
This Breakout Session will not be streamed and is only accessible with registration (the number of seats is limited). To register, you need an account on our Convention platform. After registering, you can sign up for this and all other sessions and also network and share with other attendees. Here is the platform.
