Meet the Stylophone Women of the Future
It's International Women's day! We take a look at the amazing organisations we support, that are doing great work for women in the audio industry.
The Yorkshire Sound Women Network (YSWN) was set up to help women and girls explore sound and music technology. They do this through workshops, mentoring schemes, skill-sharing, public performance and community events.
We think they’re doing great work - so we sent them some Stylophone kit to use in their workshops, and are very proud to support them!
To find out more about The Yorkshire Sound Women Network, check out their website: https://yorkshiresoundwomen.com/
We’ve also been supporting a similar organisation in San Francisco...
We were excited to see the ‘Girls on the Mic’ students learning with the StylophoneGenX1 in San Francisco!
Girls on the Mic is an after-school mentoring program that helps underprivileged girls aged 11-18 develop skills in music. It provides access to instruments and technology they wouldn’t normally have.
The project is run by the Women’s Audio Mission. They’re rightly concerned that less than 5% of the people creating the sounds, music and media we hear today are women or gender non-conforming individuals.
We donated Stylophones and Stylophone Gen X-1 and are excited that they'll help inspire more young women to play.
