Speakers

Shirley Manson

Garbage

Lauren Mayberry

CHVRCHES

Join Garbage front woman Shirley Manson and singer-songwriter Lauren Mayberry for a Keynote conversation (in association with PRS Foundation’s Keychange program) about creativity, the music industry and the female identifying narrative.

As an artist, Mayberry has continuously challenged stereotypes and been unafraid to speak out on the role and treatment of female artists in the music industry. Meanwhile Manson, a 35 year veteran of the music industry is known for being one of the most outspoken musicians of her generation on a wide variety of subjects including the ethical treatment of animals, women’s rights and the LGBTQIA community.

Join these two powerhouses as they discuss their creative processes, their experiences in the music industry and the struggle to protect the female identifying narrative in what remains a male dominated industry.
