📢 “MusicAIRE project highlights” is back to showcase the 29th in line project, supported by MusicAIRE – “Female Music Producers for Equality and Inclusion Program – Phase 1” (Acronym: project first.wave), organised by Karton-Karikatúra és Képregény Múzeum Alapítvány.
🎵 “Female music producers (FMPs) are the most disadvantaged group within the music industry. They could not advance their inclusion and equality in the past few years especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mostly there is only one female music producer participating in professional or organised music collaborations, songwriting camps or bigger scale music projects if any at all. COVID-19 made FMPs 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.
The project focuses on creating equality and inclusion for FMPs by:
– Raising awareness among EU music industry players and stakeholders to support project first.wave and promote gender balance in the music industry. This includes encouraging them to commit to sustainability goals related to female and non-binary music producers and joining the FMP Association supervisory body.
– Initiating cooperation projects with music industry players to support them in the design process of FMP related SDG policies and building gender equality related strategies (e.g. supplying design and strategy guideline)
Initiating the establishment of a support network /community and FMP Association in which FMPs can actively support and coach each other and grow their presence in the music industry
– Conducting research for laying the foundations for a future digital community network for female music professionals and beyond .”
