Woman: Breaking The Rules is a project celebrating women in Greater Manchester music. The project, which comprises 5 films, a pop-up exhibition and several events, is part of Manchester Digital Music Archive's HLF-funded Rebel Music programme and is led by MDMA co-founder Alison Surtees.
Through our online networks we held a vote to determine which 5 inspiring women in Manchester music we approach to feature in our 5 short films. A whopping 718 people voted.
Kate Mountain won the management category for her 18 years as owner/manager of The Roadhouse, one of Manchester's most loved live music and club venues in recent history.
The aim of the films is to give encouragement and inspiration to other women to share their stories and artefacts on our website, www.mdmarchive.co.uk
, so these vital histories are not lost.
On Friday 23rd Feb 2018 we launch our #MCRWomenInMusic exhibition @TheRefugeMcr with a host of female DJs bringing the noise. Watch this space!
