Panel Discussion in Amsterdam

New Emergences: A Discussion About Breaking the Glass Ceiling
A discussion highlighting the current debates around gender in electronic, contemporary and experimental music
Within these fields, it is increasingly necessary to give a platform to current advocates for under-represented voices. We believe it is important to expose existing biases that impede the richness of our diversity. By openly discussing how the current environment validifies our artistic works by the identification of our gender, we hope to challenge the existing conditions.
Keynote: Kate Moore (AU/NL)
