WHAT WE DO
Building Back A Safer Scene
POWA is an anti-harassment, anti-abuse musical collective based in Scotland. We research and fundraise to create art which raises awareness about sexual discrimination within the arts sector. We do this mainly through producing musical collaborations with other womxn, based on our collective experiences of sexism. POWA is collaborating with the music industry and other feminist groups in order to achieve a higher standard of safety for womxn in the arts.
POWA stands for Protection of Women in the Arts.
Our mission is:
to raise funds through Patreon which will provide session and commission fees for artists, providing them with opportunities to work on funded projects during the current pandemic
to raise awareness about discrimination through the work we create in collaboration with these artists
to host and support a non-violent, nurturing discussion space where it's ok to agree and disagree with each other while we brainstorm the best ways to create change in our industries
to instigate change and ensure a safer return to the creative industries for womxn artists; to build back a better music scene
