HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thanks, as always, are due:
Sincere appreciation for the generous support we received from Seth Cluett at Columbia University’s Computer Music Center, and the wonderful people at Ableton and Cycling ‘74.
Thanks to our talented flyer designers (archive below): Georgia Coleman, Marie Demple, Cassandra Jenkins, Rebecca Kaebnick, Anny Oberlink, Emily Roff, and Jane Wiseheart. Maggie Prendergast designed our logo.
Shoutout to our teaching artists: Rena Anakwe, Eleni Arapoglou, Shani Aviram, Rosana Cabán, Jacqui Cornetta, Dani Dobkin, Lee Gilboa, Jenn Grossman, Cassandra Jenkins, Becca Kauffman, Amanda Monti, Deirdre Morrison, Verónica Mota, Dafna Naphtali, Zeynep Özcan, Kate Siefker, Melodie Stancato, Georgia Usborne, Ehm West, and Cy X.
Back when we were meeting IRL Grand Street Healing Project, Magick City, The Windjammer, and The Woods graciously hosted our events.
Special thanks to Maisie Broome and Nina Berman who put together mixes that we’ve still got on repeat.
Finally, thanks so much to everyone who signed up for and participated in our workshops. You’re the reason we’re doing this in the first place!
Since the fall, we’ve been working hard to build a new website and develop an even broader range of programming. We think you’re really going to like it.
Lots of love,
Women in Sound

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
