Explore the experience of female MCs within this historically male-dominated genre with producer, DJ and MC, Mizz Beats; Shakira Walters, founder of Girls of Grime; rapper Sharna Cane; and Tanya Cracknell, The Grime Violinist in a discussion chaired by Laura ‘Hyperfrank’ Brosnan, Executive Editor of TRENCH magazine. The panel will discuss the challenges female MCs and producers have faced in achieving parity with their male counterparts and how the context is changing for current and future female artists. They will also consider the role women have played in taking the genre forward within the music industry. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

Grime Waltham Forest is bringing together MCs, producers, promoters, journalists, filmmakers and photographers to explore the emergence of grime in the borough and shine a light on those who helped create the genre as well as those taking it forward today. During October and November we are running a film-making project for 16-25 year olds and a two week programme of panel discussions, talks, film screenings, gigs and workshops.
