In collaboration with West Australian Music (WAM) and the WA Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), Perth Festival is taking steps to address gender inequality in music with Who Run The World, a free one-day workshop program that empowers young female-identifying musicians to make the playing field just a little more even.
Who Run the World is about learning the essentials for kicking goals in the music industry. From the creative process to the basics of sound, stage presence to laying the foundations for a viable music business and through to artist management, this is an opportunity to get the low down from those who have paved the way.
An incredible bunch of local musicians and Chevron Gardens performers will facilitate masterclasses and discussions across music, management, performance and production. line-up includes:
- Carla Geneve
- Elise Reitze and Rosie Taylor (Feels)
- Em Burrows (Web Rumors)
- Phoebe Gunson (Your Girl Pho)
- Libby Noble (RTRFM)
- Kerry Fletcher (Web Rumors)
- Jemma Bradford (Kopano)
- Hayley Jane Ayres (360 Artist Logistics)
- Leah Grant
Who should apply to attend?
High school students or recent graduates aged between 14 and 18, who identify as female and are interested in pursuing a career in music.
This is a free event, held at WAAPA on Saturday 9 February 2019. For full information, please visit the Festival of Perth website.
