In July 2018 eight sound artists, visual artists, music producers and DJs came together to create new music and art.

Their work took inspiration from the People’s History Museum’s exhibition Represent! Voices 100 Years On, with a focus on femme-ism and resisting through the body.

Directed by composer, producer and conceptual artist Fatima Al Qadiri, developed in collaboration with curator and researcher Amal Khalaf.

One artist said the residency "allowed me to see the beauty of running with your ideas." Another reflected that taking part "allowed me to be braver about creating music."
