For our June instalment of Riposte Presents we will be hearing from four innovative and talented women working across different areas of the music industry. Each speaker will take us through their career, special projects, how they make it work and their own innovative take on their corner of the industry. Hayley Louisa Brown will be taking us through the conception of Brick Magazine. Now on its second issue its a magazine dedicated to celebrating hip-hop without any of the
usual cliches. Nancy Tilbury is one of the co-founders of Studio XO, an incredible "fashion laboratory" that creates innovative pieces of wearable tech for a performers such as Lady Gaga. Alia Loren was named by Fader as one of the women pushing grime forward and Dawn Shadforth will be telling us about some of her best music videos including the darkly brilliant new video for Metronomy's Old Skool. Tickets are limited and always go quickly - get yours here.
Last Saturday we celebrated the launch of our sixth issue by hosting a day of talks, workshops and a roof top party at the Ace Hotel. All of the talks were inspired by the content of the sixth issue and
looked at a variety of topics including body image, sex, feminism as a trend and everyday activism. To read more about what went down and take a look at the action click here.
