The electronic music scene is full of talent - across styles, gender and backgrounds. Yet, women* are still underrepresented and often underestimated. Change is happening, but more pace and upwind is needed. Some female* electronic musicians have successfully gained a high reputation and are performing at big venues and festivals. It is about time that we multiply this effect and empower each other in a strong community of female* musicians.
Four heroines of the electronic music scenes are keen on passing on their knowledge and experiences and share their achievements with other artists that don’t have access to individually tailored resources yet.
In guided MusicHub master classes that can be attended live online, the mentors will share their knowledge and valuable experience. Anja Schneider, Camea, Emilie Lindstrom and Aarti Kriplani will reflect on their careers in the electronic music scene and provide insights on how they tackled hurdles, gained success and overcame the bias of a male-dominated industry.
In addition, MusicHub offers a mentoring programme "Empowering women* in electronic music" to five selected female* electronic musicians. In private 1:1 sessions that can be held in person or online and will be one hour per session, the experienced female musicians Anja Schneider and Camea will mentor the five selected artists based on their individual needs.
The aim is to empower these emerging female* musicians to elevate their careers to the next level, grow their reach, engage their fans and secure new income streams
The topics will be addressed in the master classes. The mentors will dive deeper into these themes in the mentoring sessions - individually tailored to the mentees needs.
