24 Feb Acoustic Live are the collective holding free events connecting creatives and giving new artists a platform to perform live
Acoustic Live, the award-winning multi-vessel platform, are setting up a women’s event in light of upcoming ‘International Women’s Day’ on March 8th.
International Women’s Day is an event in which women and their achievements are celebrated, so, it’s no wonder that Acoustic are setting up an event in light of this special day. Acoustic Live have teamed up with ‘What If’, an initiative run by Sony Music UK, to create an intimate space for anyone who identifies as a woman to get together and talk about their aspirations in the creative industry and, specifically, the music industry.
The aim for ‘Women Connect’ to provide a space that contains no judgement and showcase the free opportunities for women within the creative industry. It can be difficult for females to get their voices heard in the industry so events like these are crucial, but Acoustic Live are bridging that gap by highlighting ‘free tangible opportunities for said women’, alongside talks from some amazingly talented guest speakers.
The event is free, there will be free alcohol and also a raffle with many prizes on offer, such as free consultations with record label personnel, film and theatre-based workshops, gig tickets and a free dinner at Vapiano’s. Some of the speakers include Parris OH – senior urban artist manager at Sony Music, Sabrina Kristiansen – marketing manager at RCA Records and Claire Horseman – the former managing director at Coda Agency.
