Collaboration between creative women
elevates the whole of society.
In 2017, Katie Harman began a search for the works and stories of hidden female composers. As she scaled mountains of research - all while heavily pursuing her own professional journey as a musician - she noticed patterns of struggle among female creatives throughout history and across genres. The stories of secret (and some not-so-secret) societies that emerged from shared struggle was a lightening rod, and Katie wondered: does a platform exist to draw modern creatives together to network and foster collaboration, furthering purpose-driven work across creative industry?
Thus Virtuosa Society was born in 2020, at the height of a global pandemic, in the throes of immense social change.
Virtuosa Society is an innovative membership-based collective of female creatives across genres and levels of experience. Purpose-driven networking between creatives, access to innovative resources, and awareness + celebration of important female creators from throughout history serve as the three mission pillars of Virtuosa Society.
