Join some of the masters of the scene for a week of free music technology workshops

Music technology workshops led by women, developed for everyone

Join us, as we celebrate International Women’s Day with a specially curated series of free events, led by experts and masters in their field, which is open and available to all participants from the 6th – 13th March.

Whether you are a beginner or advanced we invite you to explore our unique workshops, which range from live coding sound to creating dynamic drum patterns, plus much more….

All sessions will be led by women artists, creators, producers and educators, within a safe and inviting online space.

Here, at Music Hackspace we champion and celebrate women who are active within the music technology field, and hope to support more women (and those who are not often represented including those who identify as non-binary) in learning music technology. 

We ask everyone in our community to challenge the status quo in music technology, to create more equal, representative and inclusive space for everyone to create, engage and enjoy. 

Find out more about our events and the workshop leaders below.

We want to hear from you 

Alongside the workshops above, we will be teaming up with Sound and Music over the coming months to find out more about the barriers women (and under-represented communities) face when engaging with the world of music technology – from education, participation, opportunities to career development. 

We will be looking to capture your views, and all feedback will help shape a forthcoming panel discussion to review, discuss and share these findings. 

Our initial poll will go live on Twitter on Monday 8th March, get involved: @musichackspace @Soundandmusicuk
