Worum es bei uns geht

MusiCoWomen brings the women* of the music industry together to co-work, network and empower each other - because community + productivity = <3

OMG It’s Happening!

It all started with a simple idea: "Hey, why not add to these new great networking opportunites for women in the music industry with something really practical? Like co-working in a productive environment to create a safe space for them?" Well we just happened to know the perfect location in Berlin...

Who are we and why do we do this?

We are Donata & Flo, an artist and an artist manager (+ so much more than what these "titles" say). We met at a show, stayed in touch ever since and when the idea of MusiCoWomen was born we decided to team up and combine our skills - it's a match! This story represents what MusiCoWomen (and CoWomen) stands for: "We rise by lifting others." We want to see women teaming up and combining their amazing superpowers, because we know there is SO much female talent out there - but not fully represented in the industry.

The problem

The numbers speak for themselves. The leading positions of big labels, publishers, booking agencies - mostly men. Right now we are caught in a vicious cycle and don't know where to start initiating change. Collaboration, mental support and cooperation might just be the key, or at least a first step. It is important to stay in touch, create a bond and think a little bit differently. All these new initiatives like VUT Women, MusicBWomen etc. are so great and we want to extend the effect of their work by providing a space that is always available for this growing community.

Our idea

All the new networking programs are GREAT (we will tell you more about what is out there and keep you updated with our newsletter (http://eepurl.com/gQkp9j (http://eepurl.com/gQkp9j?fbclid=IwAR0mLDdbRHpQQS46pzaTWCCUELBIDT7s0Fj4KHNjrF-NKAxtv6FSEHCsfsA)) and our Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/430506724327334 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/430506724327334/))), but we felt like there was something missing: An actual space to meet up that goes beyond networking - a space to get together with our laptops, sit down and work. Because being in the music industry is a pretty normal job most of the time, isn't it? We don't know anyone (not even artists) who do not spend at least a couple of days a month with administration / e-mailing / editing pictures & videos / office work in general. So why not do it together and chat a bit in between and maybe have some cool stuff happening at the end of the working day? Exactly. That's why we started MusiCoWomen - a bi-weekly co-working & networking event at CoWomen, Berlin's sexiest female-only co.working space.

The working will be accompanied by networking lunches, coffee breaks whenever needed and followed by fun events such as speed dating to network, movie nights, concerts, workshops, creative sessions and more! We have so much to share, so let’s get together and unite our forces!

Our mission is:

• to create a warm & welcoming atmosphere for any lady already involved or interested in the music industry

• to bring networking to the next level and ACTUALLY be productive together

• to meet more kickass women in the music industry

• to raise awareness to the fact that women are still extremely underrepresented in the music industry

• to have fun!

This is not against men, this is FOR women. We love men! We might even open up the events at night to them every now and then. But right now we need to establish a powerful connection between the female talent first. Let's get shit done together and stir up this dusty industry with some Girl Power!
