HERcienda: Women, Music and Manchester image

In the rich tapestry of Manchester, music venues – many now lost to gentrification – bind together so much of the city’s iconic past. But there was always a demographic missing: women.
Join Manchester legend DJ Paulette – one of only two women DJs to have a regular residency at the Hacienda – and Factory International’s Head of Music Rivca Burns and Santana Guérout, Chief of Programming at Band on the Wall, for a conversation on the absence of women in these spaces, how buildings shape our cultural landscapes and how we can build inclusive spaces that embody local histories, people and surroundings whilst honouring the shape of their futures.
