MusicNT are holding their inagural Women in Music Conference on Thursday, May 24 2018. The conference will tackle gender inequality and related issues within the music industry, as well as celebrating the many talented females in the Australian music industry.
The conference kicks off from 12.30pm at the Darwin Railway Club with a networking lunch featuring a talk and Q&A session with music activist and Bakehouse Studios co-owner Helen Marcou. A member of the Victoria Honour Roll of Women, Helen and the SLAM movement (Save Live Australian Music), were responsible for a 2010 rally that garnered over 20,000 participants and has been called 'the largest cultural rally in Australia's history'.
During the afternoon a series of workshops will be held in the Charles Darwin Waterfront Campus shining a light on different aspects of the music industry from a female perspective. The workshops will be run by females involved professionally in different music industry pathways and will include facilitators from around Australia.
The conference will conclude with a screening of Her Sound, Her Story at Deckchair Cinema, presented by director/producer Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore and producer Michelle Grace Hunder, with a post-screening Q&A.
Pushing women to the forefront, Her Sound, Her Story is an intimate conversation unveiling the personal experiences, histories and the significant social impact women have within the Australian music industry.
Conference tickets are available through Eventbrite or the MusicNT Facebook page.
