Three young women, one mic and plenty of chat about what it means to be female in the arts in 2019.
Jasmine O’Hare, Sophia Greppi and Laura Mulhern from The Arts Development Company (who are also creative freelancers) have open and honest chats about the challenges women face in UK arts and culture industry today. Each episode they are joined by special guests from the arts and culture industry to talk about everything from cameos to careers and everything in-between.

Straddling two careers in arts teaching and marketing, Jaz is the Jack of all trades and master of none. Her conflict resolution skills include sitting on the fence, agreeing with everyone and making tea. She hopes this co-hosting gig will be the nudge she needs to have those tougher chats.
Having been an art agent and arts marketer for well over a decade, Laura has a love of story-telling. Whether written, spoken or through visual interpretation, she tries to communicate the truth in these stories. But even with this love of language, Laura is still struggling with labelling herself a ‘feminist’ – what does it mean to be one? Does she even need to be one? Maybe this podcast can help her decide…
Sophia creates theatre, drag nights, and mess. She’s Ginger meets Posh meets 1969 Scooby Doo meets the b-side of a Bowie record- it's quite an aesthetic to behold. If you called her egotistical, she'd probably thank you. She's loud, opinionated, and the person to complain to if there’s any audio mistakes in our podcast. Sophia hopes to find out why people are avoiding the word feminist, and if she should start identifying as a humanist, or stay loyal to the F word.
