Coalition Organization Members!
Welcome!! Check out both these terrific organizations on our website and on theirs!
We are also continuing to develop our new wonderful
Women in the Arts & Media Communal Calendar
. Over the next few months, we will be contacting and including the calendars of every major arts and media organization and every major women's organization: all events, openings, and deadlines. This will serve a dual purpose: 1) terrific information about current events; and 2) a place to check what else might be happening on any date in the future when planning--the ultimate Blackout Calendar. This is a Google calendar, and so can be added to your own Google calendar. Please send all events to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
or submit it on our website
. All of you can help us make this calendar THE central place for events and programs of interest.

Womens' Work: Film , TV, Musical Theatre and Game Composers
Event: Wednesday May 14, 2014
"Women in general rarely get any press within the film and television industry, which contributes to the perception that there are no women composing for film and television,
which contributes to the perception that there are no women to hire for the good films that get the press and eventually the awards nominations, extending the decades long lack of women getting awarded in the industry, which feeds the perception that there are no women composers, and the cycle continues.
I hear it and see it all the time".
- Female Music Executive in a piece of private correspondence
Our panel of talented musical storytellers is sure to ignite a lively and engaging discussion about the issues facing female composers. With first class credits across a wide variety of disciplines, panelists will share career strategies, major issues within the industry and some juicy anecdotes along the way.
Come for a new perspective on the universal concerns of composers: temp scores, sample libraries, copyright agreements between director and composers, vertical layering in game composition, collaboration on big Broadway shows and more!
