You Can't Be What You Can't See: Negotiating Spaces

20 Oct 2017, 6:00pm - 7:30pm

You Can’t Be What You Can’t See. Confidence is one of the main factors behind the lack of diversity and creative output within many areas of the music community.

Aimed at women, people of non-cis male gender and people of colour, this panel is running for the second year as part of Darebin Music Feast and Music Victoria has put together a stellar panel featuring heavyweights within contemporary music and media to unpack and address confidence issues. 

This panel will focus particularly on the ways in which people have to negotiate their approach to different spaces being within a marginalised group. How do we approach certain situations dependent on the space we are in? How do we navigate ourselves within these spaces? Discussing physical spaces (gigs / professional environments) as well as internal spaces (isolation within roles / power dynamics / insecurities), the panel will tell stories, share their experiences and relationships to different spaces and provide insights into gaining confidence within them. 

We are so lucky to have the following incredible women on the panel: 

Bethany Atkinson-Quinton (PBS) – Moderating 
MzRizk (DJ/Event Curator/Radio presenter)
Simona Castricum (Artist/DJ/Producer) 
Ajak Kwai (Artist)
Sabrina Robertson (Maths & Magic/Native Tongue Publishing) 
Kira Puru (Artist/Photographer)

 

Where:
Open Studio
204 High St, Northcote VIC 

When: 
Friday 20 October 
6:00pm - 7:30pm
