Women in the Creative Arts Conference

I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected to participate in the Women in Creative Arts Conference in Canberra, August 10-12, in a couple of ways!

A piece of mine ‘Cockatoos’ for piano trio has been selected from a ‘highly competitive global field of submissions’ and will be performed by the wonderful Muses Trio at the conference recital at 7pm Friday 11th August.

I am also presenting – U N i T E – a Creative Workshop, presentation and trial of the smartphone choir app that I have in development at the moment.

Here is a bit about the conference:

The School of Music at The Australian National University is delighted to host this innovative research conference on the creative work of women. This event provides an opportunity for research professionals to gather, present their methodologies, discuss the unique issues surrounding the creative arena, and propose strategies to enhance and enrich their working lives as strong members of an international cultural and artistic voice. The gathering will feature a rich exchange of research ideas, including round-table discussions and panels that develop and enhance practices for women in the creative fields.

This event is supported by the College of Arts and Social Sciences, and the Gender Institute at The Australian National University, and the Australia Council for the Arts.

The Keynote Speakers are Professor Cat Hope (Monash University) and Professor Liza Lim (University of Sydney)
