With a production crew of all-women sound engineers, production managers, and lighting designers GIRLSCHOOL challenges the status quo.
GIRLSCHOOL is a music festival and creative community-based in Los Angeles, whose mission is to celebrate, connect, and lift women-identified artists, leaders, and voices. GIRLSCHOOL LA 2018 is where the viral video of Fiona Apple performing alongside Shirley Manson in a homemade “KNEEL, PORTNOW” shirt took place.
GIRLSCHOOL is coming to New York City. October 6-7 and will take place at, Industry City Courtyard 1/2 (274 36th Street) in Brooklyn. Founded by Anna Bulbrook in response to how few women she saw onstage in the alternative rock and festival worlds, GIRLSCHOOL has grown into a vibrant network of women-identified artists, leaders, and voices who have formed an empowering and visible community for one another while supporting women and girls.
SoundGirls supports GIRLSCHOOL and has staffed the last two Los Angeles festivals with women in production roles and sound engineering. SoundGirls has also worked with GIRLSCHOOL to provide women just starting out the opportunity to work alongside veterans in internship roles at the festival.
SoundGirls will once again be staffing and providing internship opportunties for GIRLSCHOOL New York.
If you would like to be involved – please email firstname.lastname@example.org with GIRLSCHOOL NY in the subject line and provide a cover letter, resume, and position you would like to apply for. We look forward to working with Anna and GIRLSCHOOL to make this Festival a success.
