WOMEN IN MUSIC FESTIVAL
Celebrating Women Composers Across 5 Genres
The Women in Music Festival is a celebration of women composing for Indigenous, Games, Classical, Film and Jazz music and was founded to address the fact that less than 5% of music performed on the concert platform is of music written by women.
The Women in Music Festival takes place in one of Melbourne's most unique venues, RMIT University's Storey Hall, the home of Melbourne's Suffragettes at the time they were granted the vote. Storey Hall is still, today, adorned with Suffragette colours: green, white and violet.
Planning for the 2020 Festival is well underway with dates to be confirmed soon!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
To ensure the 2020 festival takes place, we are on a mission to raise some much needed funds.
Our participating artists have spent years honing their craft and we want to honour them accordingly by paying them for their contributions to the festival.
That’s why we are asking you to support our festival any way you can. Whether it be by donating just a few dollars, every little bit helps.
So, to support this much needed festival and to help raise awareness of women composers and the amazing contributions they make to Indigenous, Games, Classical, Film and Jazz music, click on the Donate button today.
From the team at the WiMF… we thank you for your support.
