Another Life: Striving for a more equitable music and culture sector

January 4, 2023

As an award-winning non-profit organisation Another Life is here to help the culture and music sector in Denmark step into a future with improved working conditions and broad representation of minoritized individuals and women on all levels of power. The aim is to increase quality of life by increasing representation and access as well as decreasing discrimination. To achieve this Another Life develops research, facilitate various spaces for learning and give a platform to underrepresented talent within music and culture.

Striving for a more equitable music and culture sector

In Another Life, it is a belief that culture plays an important role in the way society develops. Therefore, collaborations and partnerships across the music and culture sector are an important element of the projects in Another Life.

The core task of the organisation is sharing knowledge, methods, and tools to create actual changes within the field of representation, equity, and discrimination. Their projects include research and reports, talks, workshops, festivals, various collaborations, and consultations. Another Life makes complex theory and analysis methods within the work of representation easily accessible and tangible, creating change that benefits more people and helps lift quality of life.

With a broad, nuanced, and intersectional approach, Another Life seeks to improve conditions for people across ableism, age, body image, ethnicity, gender identity, mental health, religion, sexuality, skin colour, and the intersections between these.

About Another Life

Founded January 2021, Another Life was created to expand the approach to representational work in the Danish music industry and create a positive change for as many people as possible. Ultimately, the vision is to have a culture sector where everyone is represented, and no one is exposed to discrimination.

As the founders, board members and employees have experience within the culture sector and/or lived experience with the lack of representation and discrimination, Another Life operates with different perspectives, qualifying their work and projects.

In 2022, Another Life received two awards: the prestigious ‘Steppeulvens Inititativpris’ award, for the organisation's impact on the Danish music industry; and the ‘Nordic Music Biztop 20 under 30’ award to founders Rosa Lois Balle Yahiya and Sofie Westh, for their work with Another Life.
