Stichting New Emergences is a platform focusing on gender equality in electronic music and sound art, advocating diversity by highlighting the presence and absence of women, LGBTQ+ communities, and all under-represented voices.
NE organizes a discussion series, a concert series, and numerous activities such as workshops, podcasts, and online publications. The foundation also provides advice through consultation and promotion of its affiliated network.
