2018 Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address: Cat Hope
All Music For Everyone: Working Towards Gender Equality in Australian Music Culture

Recent data overwhelmingly points to inherent problems in the Australian music industry, demonstrating that women and non-binary individuals do not experience the same access to opportunities as men working as music creators. The same data also tells us that many practitioners do not believe such problems exist, despite evidence to the contrary. In the 2018 Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address, Cat Hope will examine the current situation for music creators in Australia by bringing together some current debates and proposing appropriate actions to improve inclusion and opportunity for all people.

The 2018 Address will also feature the premiere of a new work composed by Dobromila Jaskot (WA) and Cat Hope (VIC) for voice and electronics, performed by Karina Utomo (VIC).

Presented by New Music Network and Tura New Music.
