Online Exhibition- SelfMade
Jun 4 @ 6:00 pm – Jun 29 @ 7:00 pm

Due to the venue being closed  can we not have our regular exhibitions in The Green Room, instead our exhibitions will be moved online.

SelfMade began as a portrait project in 2018, between artist and music enthusiast, Joanna Bain, and musician and content strategist Julie Hawk (HAVVK / Veta Records). Since its launch, it’s grown into a platform to explore DIY music in Ireland through events, discussion, art and performance. With a strong focus on women in music, SelfMade centres around putting artist voices first, opening up about the realities of running a music project and enabling artists to learn from one another’s shared experiences and challenges. “It’s easy to feel like you have to hold your cards close to your chest in the music industry,” says Julie. “SelfMade offers a safe space to celebrate the hard work being done by artists – the parts of the job that often go uncredited and that can impact detrimentally on their progress and mental health. We aren’t solely a visual project, but portraits have always been an important part of SelfMade – a way to invite people to connect with the musicians we host and to remind everyone that this is about listening to their story.” 

ROE by Joanna Bain, from our first Belfast event in 2018

Our goal is to celebrate the work of DIY musicians and to create a supportive space to explore the realities of getting a music project or career off the ground by:

-Providing a platform for independent musicians to learn, skill-share, and express their experiences.

-Creating opportunities for networking, community connections, collaboration, and exposure.

-Taking affirmative action to highlight and correct the underrepresentation of women in music.
