music xchange forum

women in music - workshop in malmö 16 - 19 January 2018

Music Xchange Forum is a three day workshop for female musicians and organisers from Sweden and the Middle East. Coming together to empower, inspire, network, share experiences and build capacity to strengthen our voices and freedom of expression.

The workshop will include approximately 20 persons. We aim to create a safe space where discussions can do deep and far. Among the topics that will be raised are:
** Representation, politics and gender. How do I chose to present my self as an artist and as a woman, what narrative do I tell?
* Outer and inner censorship – what does it look like today? What can we do about it?
* Possibilities to strengthen womens presence on our stages – discussion between programmers.
* International collaborations – experiences and ideas

The workshop is a continuation of our former workshop Democratic Exchange Forum.
