I’ve had an idea for the self-motivated project I will be competing for my business unit next year. I will be writing a magazine-style article about the gender bias in music.
I am going to research the change in gender bias at Glastonbury Festival since 1995 and discuss my findings once I have completed it. I found the poster campaign by Crack in The Road from earlier this year showing the minority of women at major UK festivals very shocking and think it would be interesting to see how much this has changed over time.
I’m also going to research writing and formatting techniques used in industry standard magazines and websites like NME, Sound on Sound and Rhythm to help inform me on how to correctly write it.
