A successful RMP 2023 field recording workshop for women was conducted by Ana Monte, Sound Designer and Co-Founder of DELTA Soundworks. Zoom proudly donated recorders to each of the students, helping in their journey to create and sell their work in one of the most sonically untapped areas of the world.
