ICMP tutor and acclaimed artist Catherine Anne Davies, aka The Anchoress, is to host an in-conversation event with acclaimed electronic producer Hannah Peel to celebrate International Women's Day. 

Taking place on 8th March, the virtual Q&A will discuss the respective careers of both Catherine and Hannah and their current projects and releases.

The session will also explore how they have both pushed boundaries as self-producing women in a male-dominated environment.

We're looking forward to welcoming both Catherine and Hannah to hear about their music industry experiences and advice for aspiring artists and music makers. Find out more about them both below.
