WE ARE EQUALS

We Are Equals is a training programme for emerging professionals in the music sector promoted by the British Council since 2019 with the support of the British Embassy in Spain. After several editions focused on electronic music and classical/contemporary music, the March 2024 edition will focus on jazz and modern music with two workshops. 

Co-curated by Taller de Músics and the British creative producer and coach Lucy Woolley, each workshop is led by a professional from the United Kingdom and deals with a specific theme: on the one hand, musical experimentation with AI and, on the other, the recognition of other professional paths beyond the stage.
