Women About Sound are excited to announce their songwriting mentoring programme for women and gender-diverse songwriters for 2023.
Our unique multidisciplinary Artspace supported the work of 116 artists across 25 exhibitions in our gallery spaces and ran 15 artist-led events.
Our recording studio, Depot Sound, held 120 recording sessions for more than 50 musicians and recorded 80 songs, hosted 52 rehearsals and recorded several audio books and podcasts.
Wayfind Creative, our Creative Career programme, worked with more than 200 creatives looking to build sustainable creative careers, providing 195 mentoring sessions and hosting 80 events including numerous life-changing workshops!
ArtsLab, our flagship creative pathway employment programme, worked with 168 creatives, delivered 67 workshops and helped 72 creatives find employment and helped many more enter into tertiary education.
What a year!
What lies behind the numbers are you – the artists, musicians, makers, writers, learners, creatives, authors, supporters, funders, volunteers and everyone else we worked with this year, thank you! What an amazing toi hapori – creative community, we have.
We look forward to curating and supporting more programmes, exhibitions, events and workshops with you next year and are excited by the future. Watch this space. And enjoy a rest.
Here’s to 2023!
We will be closed 22 Dec – 21 Jan, but we look forward to opening our first exhibition on Saturday 21 January next year!
