The first-ever all-female MC collective coming straight from the North. HERchester is a Manchester Female Collective made up of 7 Strong Manchester MC’s.
Massive thanks to Arts Council England for funding and all the talented female MCs in the collective.
Reform launched their Cypher project in May 2019 which focused on bringing female MC’s from Manchester together to work alongside multitalented Oneda towards a Cypher. In the process the collective was born.
In the video below, we catch performances by OneDa x The Mouse Outfit and HERchester ladies from the 2019 Manchester International Festival.
Reform Radio launched a pilot project, focusing on finding Female MC talent. Due to a lack of woman coming forward and a lack of gender diversity, we developed a pilot project with support from Arts Council England to respond to this.
This Project gave female MCs across Manchester the chance to work side by side with OneDa. We Followed the emerging Female MCs over the time period of the project, watching them transform from strangers into HERchester.
