Herstories: Rewriting Music History Edit-a-thon

November 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The British Music Collection is a constantly growing resource, but still not representative of UK society, and this needs to change! Come and join us, chat and make new friends, celebrate women composers and sound artists who should be featured and help us (at least partially) set the world to rights.

The evening will consist of an introductory talk by special guest Cathy Lane, before we crack on using our shared knowledge and the internet to create new composer profiles and add more information to the British Music Collection website, with further guest Lisa Hall. Free drinks, snacks, new music and social justice! No prior knowledge or experience necessary. Please bring your own laptop.

Generously supported by the Ambache Trust.

The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with widened doors and an accessible toilet. If you have any other access requirements, whatever they may be, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Doors for this event will open at 18.30. The talk will begin at 19.00 with time for Q&A afterwards. Drinks will be available from the bar next to the entrance to the New Wing of Somerset House.
