As you begin your career in music, you realize the need for new skills and ability to navigate a vast industry. Recording, production, mixing, publishing, networking, promos, social media etc etc. All this can seem overwhelming without objectivity and guidance.
Incubating since 2021, we have been learning about these constrains and limitations that female and non-binary artists actually face in India. The lack of mentorship, of knowledge, tech and skill formation which consequently reflects in the numbers (participation) in the music scene. Hence the need for “empowerment independent of economics”. The Organic Support Program (OSP) provides a progressive solution to the above deficiency.
What is OSP?
A network of music professionals are contributing 10 hours each over 6 months – to empower a new artist (you!). Hands-on knowledge, skills and insights. Building blocks necessary for a stable dynamic career. Individually 10 hours is less than 1% of our annual working time. Yet when we add up and value, it’s simply powerful and pragmatic know-how!
Remember when you were a newbie, looking around for help, for gigs and guidance? How to? Where to? Just like that, today’s emerging female and NB talent merits the guidance, solidarity and love. FEMWAV is addressing the problem with a new ‘organic’ solution! Education independent of economics.
In India, thousands of women (at least) have no access to professional guidance, production skills, PR, mentorship and funding – all of which are needed to manifest a successful career in music. Institutions, schools and ‘big artists’ do not address this principle point of inequality.
CHECK THE FIELDS OF MENTORSHIP WE ARE OFFERING.
The 8 OSP modules (worth 10 hours each) are conducted over a 6 month interim period. ‘Distributed Mentorship’ works online and in-person. Each module adds new skills, knowledge and insight for the aspiring talent. OSP is based on one mentor and one mentee exchange model. Both agree to enter a mentoring relationship to help the mentee develop, improve and achieve her goal. OSP is self-regulatory. Which means that FEMWAV will not be monitoring every stage. We trust both sides to excel! Check the basic guidelines created to maximize your participation, ensure growth and safety.
In association with Global Music Institute and The Dream Girl Foundation, we launched the first phase of OSP, on the 27th of August in New Delhi.
