ICMP is delighted to host the 3T Course, a new education programme aimed at giving Black women the skills for working in the live music industry. 

Taking place from now until October, the course aims to equip Black women with the resources, technical knowledge and confidence to start careers in the sector. 

3T, run by Native Management, will explore elements of stage management, lighting, audio theory and technical skills. 

Freyja Lawson, sound engineer and system tech with Mura Masa and Take That, AJ Sutherland, production manager, tech and tour manager with Dave and Nao as well as Miles Weaver, lighting director for the likes of Nao and Westlife will be leading the course. 

According to the course organisers: 

Black women are not just under-represented in touring roles, they are almost entirely missing from the picture. This course hopes to begin to correct that imbalance and ensure that women aspiring to these roles see themselves in the workforce. Live music not only wants their work but sorely needs it.”

The programme aims to enable Black women into roles such as sound engineers, lighting directors, playback techs, tour managers and stage techs.

ICMP recently launched its new Postgraduate Scholarship for Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students.
