-Online archive: female composers can send their pieces for the creation of an audio archive by Amat. The compositions will be disseminated on social channels and these songs will compete for the prize awarded by the public.
–CoCoLab: female composers, who wish to do, can enrol in the CoCoLab, the experimental Laboratory of collaboration and contamination. It is an activity carried out in presence, at the Amat headquarters, in the period 1-15 November. The registration to the Cocolab, as for the other initiatives, is free of charge.
The Femfestival is a project aimed to enhance the contribution of women in the field of music composition and at breaking down gender barriers in composition by activating a global and multicultural network of female artists.
It is a musical festival for women composers from all over the world. Women in composition, as in conducting, have had little space in the past but in recent years the situation has fortunately changed. It is therefore important that this positive trend continues in future generations.
The planned workshop activities are also designed to facilitate collaboration between female composers, encouraging the development of multicultural contributions. This year, a scholarship will be offered to an African artist who will be hosted in Florence and participate in the composition workshop activities. We believe that today, more than ever, it is essential to open up cultural frontiers and have the courage to broaden our artistic horizons.
