The Interviews are about:
– her* musical resume and/or love story with her* instrument/profession
– their challenges/crises and how they have dealt with them, what has helped
– what advice or inspiration they would give to other or aspiring musicians on their way and
– what they would like to see different in the musicbusiness for women*

For the video interviews I could bring Stefanie Stoye (video journalist and filmmaker) on board so far.

As a photographer I could win, Andrea Künstle for the project.

She will accompany and document the interviews with her photo camera. Because our idea is also to publish a book, in which approx. 100 female musicians are portrayed. Two pages will be dedicated to each musician: a portrait and the interview in abbreviated form.
