MUSIC PRODUCERS FOR EQUALITY AND INCLUSION
Creating Gender Balance in Music
We call on music creators and music businesses to join us in the work of achieving gender balance in music
Our long term goal is:
Making Female Music Producers To Be Involved And Employed In An Actively Growing Number In The Entertainment, Music Industries And Beyond.
Female music producers are the most disadvantaged group within the music industry. They could not advance their inclusion and equality in the past decade especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mostly there is only one female music producer participating in professional or organized music collaborations, songwriting camps or bigger scale music projects if any at all.
COVID-19 made Female Music Producers separated and got them even more excluded from music industry business during the pandemic. The project aims to bring female producers back to active networking on an international level, by creating a new support community, connections, collaborations and raising awareness within the industry.
Currently we are executing phase one of our long term project which is called project first.wave co-funded by the European Union.
WHAT WE DO
Project first.wave is a program designed to initiate the sustained growth in the inclusion, employment, and education of female and non-binary music producers within the music industry and beyond. To guarantee long-term functionality, the project is establishing EMPA (European Music Production Association)
ACTIONS WE TAKE
