Women in Sound Women on Sound (WISWOS) is an international hub of networks and individuals, including artists, researchers, technologists, musicians, archivists and everything in between, with an interest in sound, technology and education. This network plays a pivotal role in supporting this interventionist activity. Our goals shift in response to our findings, and as we make new network connections; they began with making visible women who work in the multitudinous areas of sound from music technology to sound art, sound and society, the politics of sound, and every area in between. WISWOS created event spaces in the UK, Lancaster and London where we have presented workshops, symposiums, peer-to-peer networking opportunities and performance/exhibition opportunities.
