Listen Better: Male advantage. How long can we sing this song?

We know the music industry is skipping a beat when it comes to diversity, intersectionality and gender equality. This lack of balanced representation spans line-ups, behind the scenes, in boardrooms, on stages and across creative industries. Set against a rising tide of anger, how do we implement the fixes? Moderated by author of Skipping the Beat, Professor Rae Cooper (Sydney University) Panellists: Dr Bianca Fileborn (UNSW), Dr Catherine Strong (RMIT), Helen Marcou (Bakehouse Studios), Jane Slingo (Younger Strangers and Executive Producer, EMC), Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore and Michelle Grace Hunder (HerSoundHerStory), Bex Davis (LISTEN) By invitation only.
4.30P - 6P

Battlehymn: A Song Story

Songs are more than just music. They are the glue that sticks memories, moments and relationships together. The right song, listened to closely and in good company, can be the most evocative thing. These are our Song Stories. Hosted by DJ and radio presenter KLP, three emerging female artists – Thandi Phoenix, Wafia and Odette, will talk about the songs that have defined them. Drawing on their personal experiences as emerging artists in a vastly male dominated industry, the artists will talk about their breakthrough moments and their ‘Battleyhymns’. Come and hear their personal stories of vulnerability, hardship and adversity and the music that has galvanised them.
