The three-night The State of Gender? event, founded by Bishi to celebrate women, technology and creativity, takes place from 26 to 28 September at The Barge House, London.

Other acts confirmed include Miri Kat, Vicky O’Neon, Lia Mice and digital artist Dr. Di Mainstone.

Topping the bill each night will be a guest performer or lecturer talking about their own unique journey through creative tech.

The programme also features four new music-based audiovisual commissions by up-and-coming artists, all of which will receive their world premiere at the festival.

WITCiH is funded by PRS Foundation and was founded with the purpose of increasing visibility for women in the creative industries.
