Atari Punk Girls

Using the enabling ethic of punk and the power of noise to inspire femmes of all ages to foster their own creative practice in the fields of sonic arts, music and electronics. Led by Loula Yorke.

Female-led DIY, lof-fi synth-building sessions for groups of girls and women.

Learn soldering and breadboarding; put together gnarly noise machines; perform live in front of an audience with these brand new creations. This is a process-driven arts project encouraging experimentation and problem-solving in the moment, and using creativity to build confidence and resilience.

During 2019 APG is grateful to have been supported by: Yorkshire Sound Women Network, Norfolk County Council, British Science Week, Brighton Modular Festival, Thonk, CLIP, and Norwich and Norwich Sound Art Collective.
