New music industry organisation, the Women In Dance Music Collective (WDM), will launch at this year’s Brighton Music Conference.
Created by Jude Thompson of Indigo Talent and Sacha Wall from Data Transmission, the collective sets out to ‘amplify the visibility of women working with the electronic dance business.’
Founding partners include She Said So, Women Produce Music, Keychange EU and the Association For Electronic Music (AFEM).
Thompson said: ‘The Women In Dance Music Collective is intended to be a platform where people can connect, share stories, inspire and promote each other.
‘Collaborating with the passion and expertise of established groups including She Said So, Women Produce Music and Keychange EU, the WDM Collective will add their voices promoting the visibility of women, encouraging new entrants and nurturing rising stars.
‘We want to instigate positive change at all levels and recognise the strong female contribution to this dynamic and growing industry.’
Brighton Music Conference – the UK’s only electronic music conference – returns for its fifth year to Brighton Dome and other venues in Brighton from 25 to 28 April.
Alongside panel talks, workshops and seminars, there will be a specialised exhibition floor for the tech and services industry for DJs and music makers, as well as networking events and club nights.
