Music promoter Laila McKenzie and writer Ian "Snowy" Snowball made waves last year with the release of a first-of-its-kind book celebrating the history of women in dance music. Titled Lady of the House, the landmark project has since transformed into an entire organizational banner that hosts women-led guest mixes, club tours and research initiatives—and now, a cultural exhibition in the U.K.
The Lady of the House Cultural Exhibition is slated to kick off on March 8th with an "Under 18s" day dedicated to music industry education for students. Coinciding with International Women's Day, the event's four additional days of 18+ programming will include speaker panels, workshops and performances by the likes of Anja Schneider, Candi Staton and Lisa Lashes. There will also be an art exhibition and various networking opportunities.
