The annual International Women's Day event was created for women working in the music genres of hip hop, rnb, soul, reggae, cultural/indigenous and electronic music. We provide professional industry advise by reputable delegates in a safe space and learning environment for women and musicians from marginalized communities. The initiative was created to educate, promote, help develop artists to become export ready and help build a strong yet inclusive Canadian Music infrastructure.
This year is going to be the first IWD Music Summit. It will be three days of panels/workshops leading up to the official IWD on March 8th with live performances by some of Toronto's most hottest up and coming female artists.
