The new series of public talks delving deep into Aussie music

Kicking off by tackling gender imbalance in the music industry. 

In support of their new Australian Music Vault exhibition, the AMV has today announced a series of talks covering important issues across the history of Australian music. 

The first talk will focus on gender imbalance in the music industry, with Dr Cathering Strong and Tracee Hutchinson (Music Victoria) leading the discussion -- unpacking ways the music community can come together in a way that promotes equality for all. 

Further talks include discussions on what it means to be a fan, what makes a great music city, and an in-depth look at copyright. 

“The Australian Music Vault Talks aim to generate conversation around important issues in the Australian music industry," says Amy Bennett, Creative Learning Producer at Arts Centre Melbourne. "Through dialogue, questioning, sharing opinions and talking about music, we can delve deep into a fascinating industry and discover the stories within." 

The Australian Music Vault is a free exhibition, inviting people to deepen their knowledge and connection with Australian music history. An Australian first, it consists of over 600,000 items including costumes, designs, programs, photographs, posters, personal memorabilia and archival material. 

The Australian Music Vault will present Gender Imbalance in the Music Industry on Thursday March 1 at the Arts Centre. Tickets are available now.
