Come Play With Me

CPWM started off life as a 7” singles club but now runs a series of initiatives that are specifically targeted towards under-represented or disadvantaged demographics within music – positive discrimination if you want to call it that! We work on most projects with women, gender minorities and LGBTQIA+ individuals,

Initiatives include 1:1 mentoring and workshops for musicians around release of new music and giving early career promoters and live industry professionals opportunities to gain experience and take risks with their own music events.

We run an LGBTQIA focussed podcast (Connected Sounds), have an annual conference for women and gender minorities in music, a bi-monthly magazine and run LGBTQ Inclusion training, initially for music venues.

Tony will be sharing observations on what is going well – and where more could be done right now.
