On 8 March, in celebration of International Women's Day, Dr Gascia Ouzounian curated a series of events that featured the talents of several students and staff in the School of Creative Arts. The day started with an all-ages improvisation workshop lead by vocalist and Performance Workshop tutor Caroline Pugh. This was followed by a panel on Women in the NI Music Industry that examined the different opportunities and challenges faced by local musicians. An evening concert, CarousELLE, featured SOCA students and staff including Isobel Anderson, Helena Hamilton, Matilde Meireles, Úna Monaghan, Katharine Philippa, Pugh and Ouzounian, as well as local musicians Rachel Anne Coulter, Claire Hall, Catherine Hatt, and Kasey Peters. The concert, which was promoted by a live performance on BBC Arts Extra and a full-page write-up in the Mirror, was played to a packed hall. It was warmly received by audiences, and the musicians are now planning further collaborations.
