The Yorkshire Sound Women Network [YSWN]
In July 2015 I called a meeting for women in our area to come together for knowledge and skills sharing. Together we formed the Yorkshire Sound Women Network. The network includes regional collectives in York, Huddersfield, Sheffield, Hebden Bridge and our affiliate group in Malta. All of these groups facilitate and deliver events and some have secured funding to deliver training – see this Sheffield YSWN film – other films can be viewed on the YSWN website.
