Keychange is the second phase of a European talent development programme which is now recognised as an international
campaign for gender equality in music. It stimulates artist development, exchange & innovation by creating new
international opportunities for performance, creative collaboration & capacity building amongst European female
musicians & industry professionals who push the boundaries of their practice. Keychange also brings together festivals
from across the world in a pledge towards programming more women by end 2022. Keychange aims to promote the
creative & economic contribution female talent could be making to Europe’s music industry through innovative, inclusive
action.

Showcases, networking, training & “Creative Lab” Capacity Building will give three cohorts of 72 women the chance to
access new markets, build international profile & extend their audience in Europe & beyond. The Lab provides
opportunities for music creators to connect with pioneering artists & entrepreneurs from tech, AV & other sectors shaping
change & innovation. This will be backed for the first time by a bespoke database promoting Keychange participants
skills to our new network of 140+ international festivals. A dynamic web platform will offer learning opportunities &
webinars, to hundreds of men & women across Europe who aren’t directly involved in Keychange training.
