Approaches to Achieving Gender Balance in Music Programming
6pm Thursday 30 November
First Draft Coffee, Filmbase, Temple Bar
Join the AIC for a discussion about approaches to tackling the issue of gender balance in new music programming. How can we achieve parity and diversity in music programming, across all genres and all areas?
Reflecting on the recent launch of Sounding the Feminists, we talk to two programmers about their initiatives to promote women in music, and their approaches to programming with diversity in mind: Aoife Concannon, the Creative Producer of Improvised Music Company’s BAN BAM festival celebrating women in jazz, and Robbie Blake, the new curator of the In Conversation series and artistic director of Tonnta, a vocal ensemble that prioritises representative programming.
Admission is free. Café open from 5.45pm
