YSWN is proud to be supported by:

Since 2015 YSWN has established a network for women and girls interested in gaining skills and confidence in music and sound technology. We’re growing all of the time, with several groups based in Yorkshire, where we started, and others established as far afield as Malta.

We’ve run workshops offering hands-on experiences in DJ-ing, live coding, Ableton, location recording, soldering electronic instruments and much more, in friendly, encouraging environments. We welcome women and people of non-binary genders. Our groups also organise their own informal meetups – a place for sharing skills and advice, finding mentors, making friends and building communities.
