“Voices for the Future” is seeking to discover, honour, and promote female voices past and present and to inspire, guide and build diverse VOICES FOR THE FUTURE.
Join us in celebrating women whose work, past and present, is deeply imbedded in our lives, even if we sometimes don’t realise it, and who are giving us hope for the future of our planet.
We have an ongoing range of diverse EVENTS and ACTIVITIES online featuring music by women composers from the UK past & present.
