Creative Impact

Kathy Bajaria

For Helvetiarockt, the Swiss national association raising awareness about gender inequality in the music industry, Kathy has spent the last few years developing the Female* Music Lab, a national grassroots project for young people in music production and DJing. In response to Covid in 2020, she launched the Helvetiarockt Musicians in Conversation podcast, produced in collaboration with Natalia Anderson.

Kathy has Indian and Austrian roots, grew up in Sheffield and lived in Liverpool, Berlin and Amsterdam. Now based in Switzerland for almost 20 years, she has been active in organising concerts, parties and political events. She co-curates the queer film festival PinkPanorama and is a member of the Lucerne Integration Commission.
