Breaking the Glass Ceiling

For this edition NE invites the composer Kate Moore for a keynote presentation and Henrietter Post, Joel Ryan, and Rozalie Hirs to join her for a panel discussion.

NE believes that it is important to expose existing biases that impede the richness of our diversity. It is increasingly necessary to give a platform to current advocates for under-represented voices. By openly discussing how the current environment validifies our artistic works by the identification of our gender, we hope to challenge the existing conditions.
