with cactus city
Cactus City Studio started as a studio and then evolved into a feminist org, but now we are so much more. We are a community of artists, allies, and supporters who want to do their bit to promote gender equality and create safer spaces for women and gender minorities in music.
We’d like to invite you to get involved but first tell us who you are:
We invite all recording studios to take action to make their space safe and inclusive for all. You can do this by signing up to the Cactus City Charter of Good Practice.
Pledge to make your studio safer and more inclusive here (button linking to Charter page).
Companies looking to support equality in music can do so in various ways, including corporate sponsorships, brand opportunities and core partnerships for individual projects or events, or the organisation as a whole. If you’d like to talk to us about our sponsorship packages or partnerships email us: email@example.com.
Musician / Artist / Creative
Our doors are always open to musicians, artists and composers to join us in spreading the word on your social platforms, or simply to get involved in the conversation. As a collective, our voices deserve to be heard. Can you recommend an artist to us? Can you create a Cactus City Spotify playlist? Would you like to write us a blog? Contact us today to get involved. (Contact us button).
There are so many people of all ages in the music industry that would greatly benefit from your expertise. Are you someone with experience in the industry? Could you give someone else a leg up? Could you give an hour of your time to mentor a young female or gender producer? Are you a music lawyer who can offer some advice? Join our mentor network and help out today. (Join the Network button).
Record / Management Label
We are thrilled to see that so many labels are looking to improve standards across the industry, but there is still a great deal of work to do. If you are a label and you wish to discuss any of the issues we tackle, we’d love to hear from you. Let’s work together to make a safer and more inclusive industry now.
Gifts in Wills are an essential way for Cactus City Studio to continue our work in music equality and to provide physical safe spaces and aftercare. We are happy to accept your kind donation and assure you that 100% of your generous gift will be used to ensure the safety of women and gender minorities. For more information about making a legacy pledge to Cactus City, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work with many colleges and universities throughout the UK, to offer open discussions, talks and pathways to work. Contact us today to discuss how your institution (and your students!) could benefit from a chat with Cactus City Studio UK. (Contact button)
