Melbourne based social enterprise, Music Production for Women (MPW) has announced a 2 day Women in Music Tech Summit consisting of music masterclasses to empower female and non-gender conforming musicians on the 15th and 16th of October.

The event will be held online to increase accessibility for musicians in cities as well as regional areas and will feature sessions with the likes of ARIA nominated, Becki Whitton, Sydney based up and comer Charlotte Adelle, University of Lethbridge professor, Marcela Rada and MPW’s award winning founder and CEO, Xylo Aria. More teachers for the event are to be announced over the coming month.

The Summit, backed by Creative Victoria, will be free for all to attend.

A previous online, one day, event organised by MPW which took place in January 2022 attracted over 1,600 registrants from over 120 countries. An attendee of the January event, Andrejka Zupancic commented that it had been a “break through point for me, as I always wanted to get involved into music production and this day (was) so important for me!”.

The days will run from 9am to 3pm AEDT and will feature 10 workshops on a variety of topics that many independent artists today need to know such as the basics of music production, sound-design and mixing, as well as music marketing, PR and songwriting workflow. Both days will also include networking sessions to allow attendees to build their networks with other like-minded musicians.

“I’m hoping we can inspire any attendees who may have wanted to produce but felt intimidated by it, to take their first steps in the field”, says Xylo. “I know having an event like this available when I first started would have made production feel a lot more accessible to me!”, she adds.

MPW, an organisation that began three and a half years ago and has since been included on the Top 50 Innovators of East London list in 2020 and earned Xylo a place on the She Said So Alt Power List. It has run workshops and courses to over 6,000 musicians from over 120 countries and continues to grow steadily.

The organisation was created with the aim of empowering women in music technology and prides itself on not only providing practical and actionable educational content, but also on harbouring a safe and encouraging space to learn in.

Free tickets for the event will be available here until the event capacity has been reached:
