Here's a little tl;dr list of the sessions on this weekend, I've put fb links below so you can click through and nab yourself a free ticket. Some of these are almost completely booked out, so I'd definitely recommend you book ahead. <3
Saturday 9 March
12:00pm - 1:00pm 9 Volt – Production, Sound and Music
APRA AMCOS angels have put together an incredible bunch of producers to talk about their work and process.
2:00pm - 3:00pm Are You Experienced?
Rock & Roll Writers Festival have facilitated some incredible discussions in the past and I'm really looking forward to Leanne de Souza pick the brains of two lifelong career artists and partners in crime, Dave Graney and Clare Moore.
Sunday 10 March
12:00pm - 1:00pm M.I.A. Masterclass in Accessibility
When we all talk about feminism and activism, we so often leave disability out of the conversation. This has been especially on my mind since reading Carly Findlay's new memoir Say Hello last week. Bandmates Victoria are doing some great work within our local communities and I can't wait to hear from them and their guests.
2:00pm - 4:00pm Fuelling Something Good – scoping your career in the music industry
This is going to be a huge end to the weekend. Music Victoria, The Push and Girls Rock! Melbourne have banded together to help you figure out what you need to do to get to where you want to be in the music industry. There's going to be some wonderful guests here – a great networking opportunity to fellow industry nerds.
If you want to see what's happening the weekend after, go to brunswickmusicfestival.com.au.
This is really exciting for me and the first time I've ever done anything like this. Hopefully see you at Brunswick Mechanics Institute this weekend or the next!
