The World is Listening

Brighton Residency at The Rose Hill

Join us as TWIL heads to Brighton for a weekend celebrating and supporting women in music this march!

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we take our successful residency (as seen at Bristol’s Canteen) to Brighton’s coolest new arts hub, The Rose Hill – a place well suited to pushing boundaries, on March 25 & 26. The people at The World is Listening have curated a full weekend of workshops, live music and conversation, and with the support of Arts Council England, the programme is completely free!


Saturday 25

11am – 1pm Talking Pictures Workshop session with Exploring Senses

This workshop involves participants making and recording analogue synth sounds using Korg Littlebits kits, then drawing and painting pictures with Posca paint pens and conductive ink and using the pictures to trigger the synth sounds you have created. In short you get to make you own interactive digital sonic artwork.


Afternoon: Music Industry Support Drop-in. Come along and chat to members of The World is Listening and the local music industry about your work, their work, our work, or no work.



8pm | Free Entry

Sunday 26th

11am – 1pm Vocal Looping workshop with Cate Ferris: Explore your voice as a tool, discovering sounds and shapes to build dynamic soundscapes using the loop station.


2pm: Music, women, and AGE: A Panel Discussion on ageing in the music industry.

Join us for an honest, gritty conversation about what it is to be young, or old, or a woman in the music industry.

“When I was 19 or 20, I found myself in this position, being pressured into wearing more and more revealing outfits.”

 “ not age.  Because to age is a sin. You will be criticised, you will be vilified, and you will definitely not be played on the radio.”

– Madonna
