Women and gender minorities in music festivals

As a member of Scivias, a network of music professionals who together affirm the existence of inequalities in the music sector, we are sharing with you their 2023 report on the place of women and gender minorities at 36 music festivals in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. This study highlights the unequal access of men and women to the music scene and encourages all professionals to take active steps towards greater equality.

FACE : Fostering Awareness on Youth Cultural Entrepreneurship

Young people, and especially vulnerable groups, such as women, are currently 3 times more likely to be unemployed than other age groups.  The motivation of this project is to propose solutions to the issue of youth unemployment, particularly in deprived areas and for less qualified young persons, some of whom belong to minorities with cultures diversifying them from the mainstream culture. The project focuses on promoting cultural entrepreneurship, fostering youth employability, supporting local communities, promoting active citizenship through networking and participatory methods, and providing continuous professional development for trainers. The project partners aim to engage youths that are marginalized due to their social, economic, or geographical status and to provide them with access to training opportunities that can support youth employability, entrepreneurship, and local communities.
