Women of the World at WOMEX celebrates its seventh annual event at Santiago de Compostela 2016! After a Greek coffee hour in Thessaloniki and a British tea party in Cardiff, we invite the mujeres of WOMEX for an encore Spanish Licor Café and an olé for WOMEX’s return to Santiago.
This session breaks down the delegates into small groups to encourage natural networking opportunities while addressing the issues at the forefront of being a female professional working in the international music sector. We exchange stories, learn the unique ways women in world music survive through creativity, and share tools for staying active and relevant in an ever-changing industry.
For first timers, it’s a great way to meet a few friendly faces before the whirlwind of the conference hall takes over; for the annual WOMEXicanas, you already know, Women of the World unite at WOMEX!
