THE ART OF REBELLION - The Intersection of Music & Politics
Tues 8 Oct, 8:30 am
Facilitator: Merenia Marin (Artist/Specialist Ignite Ability Facilitator SSI)
Panelists: Yumi Stynes (Television/Radio Presenter, Author), Kara Hinesley (Head of Public Policy Australia & NZ - Twitter) & Alethea Beetson (Digi Youth Arts)
Art is political because it always presents a world view. Voices of difference have to fight to be heard. But once accepted, voices of rebellion can be co-opted and appropriated by the usual suspects. We take a deep look at the voices that are appropriated and the voices that are completely and fundamentally silenced. How can the music industry change to support the integrity and survival of genuine voices of rebellion?
