Smartbar has consistently supported and welcomed woman-identified and non-binary artists. They also identify them as the leaders they are through triumphant efforts for a diverse community.

“We work hard to place woman-identified and non-binary artists in positions of leadership in our club on a consistent and ever-increasing basis.

Women have been central part of the architecture smartbar’s residents program for almost 20 years—long before equality in dance music was a hot-button topic.”

They continue to spread the message of learning and growing together, which is critical to our progression on the matter.

“We welcome everyone to participate, learn and grow with us through the series which will feature both club events and workshops.”
