Boudica Music Conference For Womxn and Non-Binary Artists
The team behind Boudica launches its first music conference. The event will be a day of educational panels and streamed DJ sets from The Freemasons Hall. The main focus of the project is to inspire more womxn and non-binary people to become involved in the music industry by delivering content from professionals they align with. The conference will be lead by a variety of working industry professionals to give insight into what their roles involve and the challenges they face working within the industry, including DJ sets from object blue, Tasha, Proteus, and Samantha Togni. This event is not for profit and will be free to attend, with the aim to bring positivity and a sense of collectiveness throughout gender minorities working in music.
