Panel with Ena Lind (Mint Berlin), Lenora Thornton (Sister) and Umfang (Discwoman).
Moderated by Lisa Blanning.

This afternoon, hosted by music journalist Lisa Blanning, provides a platform for a few female and female-identified groups to not only present themselves to the public, but also to meet, exchange and cross-pollinate everyone’s work even further.

This panel with MINT Berlin, New York's Discwoman, and international initiative Sister, regroups three female-identified DJ collectives for a discussion around their experiences when pushing forward gender diversity be it by running a booking agency, putting on events, to performing and being in the public eye.
