Sounds Like Women Community Day

For centuries, even in the darkest hours communities gathered around music to empower, reunite and enjoy the moment together.

In this difficult time of Covid19, following all the safety measures we want to bring our community together. We want to inspire and empower people through music and its related activities, which is the main mission of our project. Just to be able to bring back safe engagement, joy and support especially, to the most vulnerable during the pandemic we are excited to announce the first Sounds Like Women Community Day. This event will be happening online on the 12th of September from the garden of Sound Like Women headquarter in Hinton Parva, between 12:00 and 19:00. Due to current local outbreaks of Covid-19 we will stream the event online to keep you all safe.

• For all day, we will showcase local art and enjoy live music from Sounds Like Women international artists, local musicians & music lovers.

• There will be sale of products from ‘Homemade by Women’ – our new, inspiring initiative. It will coincide with the launch of our new online shop with products made with passion and love by women mainly as a part of their hobby or small businesses.

Inspiring is empowering…
