Local Sirens: Women in Music Performance Series is a free, all-ages quarterly performance series that features exceptional Bay Area women and gender non-conforming musicians and performers.

WAM Recording Residencies offer primarily underrepresented Bay Area women and gender non-conforming musicians and performers free recording services and performance opportunities, while providing critical work experience and professional credits to emerging women producers and recording engineers. These sought-after residencies include professional development opportunities, artist promotion, performances, and community forums.
