All Womxn's LA Community Hangout

We want to invite the womxn and female-identifying members of WDMV to attend our first all womxn's LA Community Hangout! After multiple meet-ups it’s become apparent that the majority of attendees are male, we want to bridge the gender gap and encourage underrepresented groups to join the conversation. This is an opportunity for womxn to have a safe space to provide their perspective, learn from one another, share resources, and build empowerment through community. 

We realize that a lot of you receiving this email are men, but we would like to ask for your help in spreading the word by forwarding this invite to any and all ladies you know who are a part of the music video community. Thank you in advance! 

We are looking forward to meeting all the fierce womxn, trans, femmes, non-binary and female-identifying individuals who are part of this industry!

First NYC Community Meet up

What’s up, East coast! We are happy and excited to announce our first New York City Community meet up is going to happen Saturday, December 8th at 6:00pm. Much like our LA counterpart, this will be our first opportunity to all hang out, meet new people, catch up with old friends, and figure out our community’s priorities over some beers. We will also give you an update on what we have been working on in the background, what we have developed to tackle both our long term and short term problems, as well as give you all of a chance to share and discuss ideas in a safe space amongst your peers. Think less “town hall” and more “summer camp/group therapy”.

Can’t wait to see you all there.
