WXMBVIEW: GRRRL ZINE FAIR @ VILLAGE GREEN

We were invited by Lu from Grrrl Zine to speak on a panel chaired by Kayleigh Ramchand from Speak & Sound. Our own Petra touched on the subject of how WXMB 2 started, what our initial goals were when starting out and how they've developed, what we could be doing more to combat gender imbalance within the industry workforce and encourage womxn that are non-binary, LGBTQ, ethnic minority & from less privileged socio-economic backgrounds to get into music, what challenges we face day-to-day, as womxn in the industry and collectively as an organisation looking to promote women in music, and much much more!




Village Green is a multi-art form and music festival, produced by Metal Culture in the picturesque grounds of a beautiful Victorian park in Chalkwell, Southend on Sea.


Grrrl Zine Fair by Lu Williams celebrates contemporary DIY feminism though zines, live events, practical workshops, and a pop up library. Mixing art, publishing, music, performance and film, Grrrl platforms voices marginalised by mainstream media.
