SISTERWORKS: Women Empowering Women in Music and Creative Industries

by Lua jones in Bristol, Bristol, England

We did it
On 11th December 2017 we successfully raised £2,653 with 77 supporters in 35 days


Calling all Sisters! The SisterWorks line up continues to heat up! Top industry women are coming to Bristol to teach you skills in Music Production, DJing,  Fashion/Up-Cycling, Song writing, Illustration, Dance, Graffiti and more!  

Join singer/songwriters Eva Lazarus and Hannah Williams, producer Liz Horsman, dressmaker Lydia Higginson, graffiti artist Hazard and DJ’s Etch-a-Sketch (turntablism) and Queen Bee (DJing); and dance aficionados LuvLar (breakdance) and Lottie Ball (vogueing) for an all-encompassing uplifting day of celebrating women of all backgrounds doing their thing.  

Taking place at dBs, St Thomas St, boasting state-of-the-art Apple Macs and the latest software including Ableton, Logic Pro, Pro Tools and multiple studios there will be plenty of space and access to hone your chosen crafts.  

Happening on Saturday 13 January this is a day not to be missed!

Tickets are just £20 for the full day and include access to the studios, equipment and our talented team, There will be a panel discussion, Q&As and a networking lunch. All you need to do is bring yourself and an open mind! 

Women account for only 30% of senior executive roles in the Music Industry in the UK, despite making up more than half of entry-level positions.  Women make up more than half of the workforce aged 25 to 34 but only 33% of those aged between 45 and 64.  Only 11% of senior managers come from a minority background.(UK Music Diversity Study, 2016) SisterWorks want to change that and believe the first step is to demystify entry processes and give visibility to those leading lights in their chosen fields to inspire you to follow your dreams! 

Tickets are available now via our rewards on our Crowdfunder.   You can buy your own ticket, gift a friend or loved one, or buy a ticket for a 'sister in need'.

Crowdfunding -


We are appealing to you for YOUR help for our initiative which will provide skills, experience, and networking in a safe-space for women, or those identifying as women to receive the help and support necessary to hone a hobby or even to start a new career in the Music or Creative Industries. We will go on to ask for support from local and national grant-making trusts to forward the project and sustain it into the future but need £5,000 now to get this first exciting event off the ground.

Any donation, no matter how large or small, would be so gratefully received.   If money is tight right now, you can still help by forwarding the link to this page to as many individuals or organisations you know and/or like it on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/SisterWorksUK

In return, there are many rewards that you can receive; from a ticket to our event to donating one for a woman that can not afford one, there are also lots of fantastic rewards donated by our friends in local businesses who we are very grateful to for supporting the project, such as festival/club tickets, food vouchers and more. 

Perhaps what’s even better, is the reassurance that comes in knowing that the support you have given may have helped your daughter or grand-daughter, mother or wife, partner, sister, aunt, niece, friend or colleague to access a safe and an uplifting environment of skills, knowledge and support in an area they love.

The £5,000 will go towards our event costs;  Complimentary Passes/Bursaries, Food/refreshments, Tshirts and promotions, Admin/Postage, Stickers, Posters, Leaflets/Booklets, Banners/Signage, Programme/Lanyards, Adverts, Insurance, Travel, Expenses and more.. If we exceed our target the money will help us make the organisation sustainable and able to offer longer sessions and an even more exciting and in depth series of workshop and events.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT!
