The Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy in Moscow together with Parallel have launched an open call, seeking women working in the music industry to take part in the professional development programme ‘Parallel Residence II’ from 20-27 May 2019.
Parallel strives to foster inclusivity and gender equality for women in the music industry, through its educational programmes and music events. Participants will be invited to develop their song writing and production skills in small groups, whilst given access to studios with special music equipment. The programme will also include intensive workshops run by UK organisations Saffron Records and Brighter Sound, as well as a DJ set from FEMME amongst other local acts. The aim is to create a safe environment based on inspiration and support, in which the participating women can develop ideas and immerse themselves creatively.
Applications are welcome until Monday 13 May. The panel will select 15 successful participants from the applications received.
Parallel Residence II is supported by the Institute for Music Initiatives and Moscow Music School.
