New Beginnings

After three years of programming, we’re excited to announce some major developments on the horizon.

 

Women in Sound is changing its name to better reflect our growing community of artists. We’re putting our events on pause to focus on raising funds and building a much-improved website. We anticipate the website (and new name!) will be ready to launch in Q1 of next year.

 

Our core mission remains the same: to offer experimental and versatile arts education outside of a formal institutional context.

 

We started out hosting workshops in the back of a dive bar in Queens. Since then our community has expanded globally with more demand than we could keep up with!

 

Our new website will offer more creative resources and better ways for our members to connect with one another. We will also expand our programs and initiatives to raise funding for residencies and artist support.

 

For our WithFriends supporting members: we will cancel all memberships on October 15th, 2021. If you want to continue contributing past that date please let us know by writing to us. All donations will go towards funding our new website. (You can cancel your membership at any time by signing into withfriends.co. Select “Manage my Benefits”, then “Cancel Membership”.)

 

We’re grateful to all the teachers who have dedicated their time to fostering meaningful exchanges of ideas. Thank you to our designers who created some drool-worthy flyers. Finally, we couldn’t have done any of this without the support of our artist community.

 

We love hearing from you about anything and everything - reach out at hi@womeninsound.org


 

Much love,

Women in Sound
