SWAN believes organising events is essential to raising awareness, have important conversations and connecting women of the industry. Here is the list of events:

SoundTrack_Zurich has selected a series of experienced professionals (mainly female directors, music supervisors, publishers and producers) who are interested in meeting female composers and sound designers in order to exchange knowledge, to give advice, or just to expand their network.
Welcome words by Ivana Kvesic (SWAN) and Cornelia Köhler (WIFT) with a live-interview with music supervisor Milena Fessmann, hosted by composer Mirjam Skal in cooperation with SWAN, WIFT and AWFC.
Although sex scenes on set have become routine, they continue to be a major challenge for actors, directors and the film crew. So far, there have not been any guidelines for a safe context that helps actors deal with intimacy and nudity.
