Tales of misogyny and sexism in the entertainment industry isn’t an unheard story, but it is an important one that demands awareness. Independent female artists just aren’t provided the safety and privacy required to prepare for performances. Stories of open restrooms and changing areas to being groped and harassed backstage, again, aren’t new, but often overlooked or disregarded.
That’s why recording artist and curator Bianca Ingram, is holding an on-going Live Music series: Amazonian Nights presented by 100B+ dedicated to providing an immersive experience of music and artistry, while providing a safe space for female artists to engage their audiences. A portion of the proceeds will go to a non-profit organization that helps train and prepare young women to take on the business side of the entertainment industry so we can have more female bosses in the future.
Bianca Ingram, who is from South Jersey, has had a top 5 hit in the UK and has toured internationally, all while gearing up for her next album after releasing two very successful singles, "Yes" and "Fire." As an independent female artist, she understands how difficult it can be to find safe spaces to perform, grow your brand, and be treated as an equal. With this series, she seeks to provide a safe space for women to perform and share their art.
As we prepare for this month's event, we have invited celebrity DJ, Siaani Love, artists from New York, Philly and the whole tri-state area to perform at Philadelphia’s Underground ARTs, with an all female band provided to back every artist! Hosted every last Tuesday of the month, we’ll come together for a night of good drinks, good music, and most importantly, good company! We hope that you will support this year’s efforts with a sponsorship of $150 or more.
Above you will find a sponsorship package for your consideration. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.
We hope that you will stand with us as we begin what will soon be one of Philadelphia’s biggest music series and women’s empowerment initiatives!
