Alice Ivy launches Game Changers

Game Changers is a series of happenings in Hobart from 3-5 November to develop and celebrate women in music.

Electronic producer Alice Ivy was in Hobart to officially launch the program, which features an assortment of workshops, events, and opportunities, for music makers and lovers to connect, learn, and showcase.

Alice will play a key role in the Women In Electronic Music Program, which provides opportunities for women to learn technical and production skills from some of Australia’s best female electronic producers.

“I'll be taking two workshops, along with the amazing Rainbow Chan, to help build the confidence of women working with different production techniques."

"Electronic music is an area where women have been traditionally underrepresented, and opportunities like this, which encourage women to experiment and play with production and tech are really important. They not only develop new skills but it also helps to change the perception that it's a male game."  

On Friday 3 November, Game Changes officially kicks-off with an Opening Night Party in the Founders Room, Salamanca Arts Centre, featuring music from Q.E. (aka Jacqueline Collyer), Sumner, S L O W, and a headline set by Alice Ivy.

There is a bunch of masterclasses over the weekend to help to develop the capacity and confidence of women in music. Stagecraft specialist, Zeraphina Zara, will help performers better connect with an audience. Music critic Kate Hennessy is taking a one-day class in How to Write About Music, and the (Un)Conference on Saturday is an afternoon of conversation, collaboration, and cups of tea.

Game Changers celebrates the women making music in a showcasing spectacular on Saturday night that features an assortment of female-led line-ups, presented in partnership with Hobart's best live music venues.

The whole Game Changers shebang wraps-up on Sunday with a Languid Luncheon at MONA from 12-4pm, that promises to be an afternoon of stimulating conversation, a decadent feast, and live performances by DENNI, Emma Waters (EWAH), and Maria Lurighi.

Leanne de Souza (Executive Director, Assoc of Artist Managers) is presenting a keynote, followed by a panel conversation with Kate Hennessy, Emma Waters and Maria Lurighi and Denni Proctor.

This program is supported by funding from the City of Hobart.

Music Tasmania is assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
