The divide between male to female roles in electronic music has been unbalanced for some time, particularly in our home city. We have often heard the question: Where are all the female producers in Northern Ireland? To try and help build a more balanced scene, our aim is to create a space to nurture and mentor talent. Diversity is not just driven from bookings, but also from supporting the growth and development of artists.

Key Dates:
Launch date: June 10th 2021
Closing date: 25nd June 2021 (application deadline)
Course Dates: 19th – 23rd July

Core to our commitment to diversity, we believe booking a balanced lineup should be coupled with nurturing talent from unrepresented and marginalised backgrounds.

This Female + Non-Binary Producer Programme will provide 5 individual music production workshops for females and female-identifying communities in Northern Ireland. In partnership with Timmy Stewart (Extended Play) across the course of a week, Timmy will share knowledge on how he creates unique edits & dubs for his own sets, records DJ mixes, radio shows & podcasts and include briefs for remix & music creation projects. As well as the range of studio production skills and mentoring on offer, one main aim of the course is for each participant to finish the week with a piece of their own music.

“I’ve been DJing & making music for almost 30 years, designing and delivering training across the last decade as well as mentoring a range of electronic artists in Ireland. I’m looking forward to sharing my skills and knowledge with some new producers this summer, as part of this incredible opportunity from the AVA Festival & Arts Council NI” – Timmy Stewart (TNI, Black Bones, Extended Play)
