Odd Woman Out: Being a Female Hip Hop Artist & Promoter

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We rap like girls and give birth to scenes. We will explore our multitasking and bridge-building skills as women to strengthen our scenes. We will discuss personal, gender-based experiences to identify barriers to artistic success. We will examine how our gender has impacted our perspective, and devise strategies for building artistic and promotional networks with other women to strengthen our presence. Participants will leave with strategies to (re)build their scenes, combat female artist stereotypes, and feel a sense of empowerment.
