Brighter Sound is a creative music charity, based in Manchester and working across the North and nationally. They believe music-making and creativity should be a central pillar in the lives of all children and young people, that emerging musicians should be supported to develop their artistic confidence and originality, and that the music landscape should be equal and diverse.
Both Sides Now is a large-scale initiative taking place across the North of England to support emerging female artists and up-and-coming industry professionals to transform the future of the music industry.
We want to create a growing network, deliver sustainable activity, and affect permanent change around the perception, opportunities and profiling of women in music, from the classroom, to the boardroom, to the stage.
Both Sides Now is supported by through Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fund.
