Equalizer Care Sessions
Online — June 22nd, 2021
Since the launch in 2017, Equalizer is all about providing network opportunities for female and non-binary music creators in the Nordics. For the safety and wellbeing of all participants, last year’s activities were all held virtually. We know that a lot of creatives struggle to stay creative this very special year when social distancing is a fact and songwriting has turned virtual, so we are excited to partner with psychologist Rosana Corbacho from M.I. Therapy for ‘Equalizer Care Sessions’.
Rosana Corbacho is a clinical and humanistic psychologist specialized in the music industry. Equalizer and Rosana invite ten music creatives to join a special support group custom-made for music creatives.
The Care Sessions is a place to air your thoughts together with like minded artists, songwriters and producers. A safe space where you can get support from peers, all under guidance of an experienced music industry therapist. Are you struggling with creative challenges, writer’s block or anxiety and want some extra care and support? Apply to the Care Sessions below.
