New Emergences is a lecture and discussion series highlighting the current debates around gender in electronic, contemporary and experimental music. Within these fields, it is increasingly necessary to give a platform to current advocates for under-represented voices. We believe it is important to expose existing biases that impede the richness of our diversity. By openly discussing how the current environment validifies our artistic works by the identification of our gender, we hope to challenge the existing conditions. The series was initiated by, amongst others, Anne Wellmer and Semay Wu.

On Tuesday 13 December 2016 at 19:30 CET the fifth installment of the series welcomes key note speaker Kate Moore (AU/NL) and panelists Henriƫtte Post, Joel Ryan (US/NL), and Rozalie Hirs.

The event is moderated by Anne La Berge (US/NL), and takes place at Splendor, Nieuwe Uilenburgerstraat 116, 1011 LX Amsterdam, Netherlands.
