Anna Meredith will be leading a four day residency from July 18-21 for young and emerging female musicians with Brighter Sound, in collaboration with the Museum of Science and Industry. There, they'll collaborate and create new work inspired by the Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry before premiering the work at the museum’s Science in The City Late event on Wednesday July 27.

I'm so excited to be leading Brighter Sound's summer residency in partnership with the Museum of Science and Industry – this fascinating museum is going to be a brilliant starting point for new musical and visual work and I can't wait to see what we all come up with," Anna said. "I’ll be bringing in my longterm collaborators, workshop­leader and guitarist Jack Ross and my sister, visual artist Eleanor Meredith, with whom I’ve worked on several successful cross­ media projects over the years. We’re all passionate about supporting young female creators, and collaborating on new work in such an inspiring setting will be a great place to work together, exploring both collaborative large group pieces and giving space to develop individual ideas."
