Music Week: Women in Music Awards

We're incredibly excited and privileged to have been given the 'Diversity in the Workplace' award at Music Week’s Women In Music Awards, recognising our work with women, people of marginalised genders and LGBTQ+ communities.

HUGE Thank you to everyone who has ever supported us in whatever way that looks, we are so grateful!

Our mission is to work towards a music industry that is equitable for everyone. We want to continue & build on our support for People of Colour, queer, trans/non-binary people, working class, disabled, neurodiverse people, and everyone else pushed out to the margins.

We're excited to collaborate with more people into 2023 and beyond to do that!

What We Do

We work with musicians, sound engineers, promoters, photographers, writers, event programmers and more from across the Yorkshire region to develop their skills and networks. We aim to create and sustain a more equitable creative industry through our various projects.

 

We run a record label releasing the best new music Yorkshire has to offer, release a bi-monthly magazine and regular podcast. We programme our flagship music conference; I Know A Place every January, which supports women and people of marginalised genders in the industry.

 

We run Come Platform Me, a dedicated programme of support for new and inexperienced promoters and event programmers, as well as hosting shadowing opportunities for engineers, photographers and other creatives. 

We specialise in LGBTQ+ inclusion and offer consultancy and workshops to help more organisations build on their own support for the LGBTQ+ community.
