Psst Mlle is an intersectional feminist platform standing for more inclusion and representation in nightlife and music. We aim to create tools to support MaGe* artists and cultural workers, while paying great attention to racial and economical discriminations. With our events, we're questioning the codes of nightlife and deconstructing the dance floor. Besides, we try to tackle discrimination at its roots with our workshops, conversations and more.

Founded in 2018 by Souria Cheurfi, the platform is carried by a collective whose members have evolved and will keep evolving. The collective's current members are Andrea Nivière, Daya Hallé, Katia Lecomte, Lola Lourdes, Manal Benmalek, Mika Oki, Soumaya Abouda, Souria Cheurfi, Yasmina Tayoub and Zoé Merchez. But Psst Mlle is a open and moving community - everyone who performs or contributes to any Psst Mlle projects is basically a part of it.

Since the very beginning, Psst has always been about collaborations and (re)uniting.

Psst MlleCharter

We invite anyone willing to work with us to agree with the charter below:

WHAT WE TRY TO BRING

  • - A space where everyone can express themselves while respecting others.
  • - A space to share knowledge and experience.
  • - A space where we can question ourselves.
  • - A space where we deconstruct the codes established by the patriarchy.
  • - A space where we question our own codes.
  • - A space where under-represented issues are raised.
  • - A space where the invisible can express themselves.
  • - A space where party and care go hand in hand.
  • - A space where emerging and established talents are valued equally.
  • - A redefinition of the party space.
  • - And some lightness and love, too.

Psst Mlle is a space dedicated to coming together and reinventing things from scratch.

WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU

We expect from the people we interact with — audiences, institutions, venues, production teams, security staff, bartenders, technicians, and more:

  • - To welcome and interact with each other in a respectful and careful way.
  • - To make suggestions that are aligned with our values.
  • - To be willing to deconstruct, dialogue, and listen to each other in order to learn from each other.
  • - To keep an open mind and pay honest attention to racial, feminist, decolonial and LGBTQIA+ questions.
  • - To offer fair fees.
  • - To be kind and caring.

What we are looking for is real collaborations.

This charter is a work in progress, just like Psst Mlle.

For several years now, Psst Mlle has been collecting names of MaGe (Marginalised Genders: women and marginalised gender identities and expressions) artists on a document. Initially intended for internal use, we realised that it would be useful to share it and make it available to everyone.

With this database, we intend to create a tool to not only connect with each other and strengthen our communities, but also to make this unity visible outside of our circles, answering once and for all to the mainstream scenes’ argument that we are not numerous or visible enough.

This database aims to bring together MaGe artists in the Belgian music scene and the various sectors that revolve around it. So far, the main categories are DJ, producer, live artist, scenography, technician, safety and collective. But we expect these to grow and evolve thanks to your contributions.

On that note, this database is a work in progress and the website will keep evolving and improving. Feel free to send your feedback to database@psstmlle.space.

How to Browse and Search

You can Browse by clicking on the main categories stated above. A list of names will show up. You can then click on each profile in order to check out their bio, websites, socials, sometimes their email addresses or any other useful link.

To Search, you can type in a music genre, a category, a specific job, or even the name of an artist and the list will narrow down to show exclusively the results which contain your search.

How to Submit a profile

If you want to add yourself or someone else to the database, you can fill-in the Submit form. Each submission will be carefully reviewed by our collective. Please bear in mind these two criteria: this database is about MaGe people based in Belgium.

The form is pretty straight forward:

We need the (artist) name, occupation (see categories), up to three links, one link for social media, a short bio (up to 10 000 characters spaces included) and tags. Please make sure the tags contain all your skills (if you’re a DJ and a producer and a scenographer and a sound engineer, and…) as well as music genres if you’re a musician, or anything that describes your project.

This website is part of our Deconstructing the Dance Floor project, which aims at questioning the codes of nightlife and the music scene and was supported by the Equal Opportunities Unit of Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.
