AWMA unveils 2019 program & keynote speaker

With the countdown well and truly on for the 2019 Australian Women in Music Awards, the event has begun its rollout of exciting program details ahead of the October Awards Ceremony and Concert at the Brisbane Powerhouse!

Leading the announcement, the reveal of the 2019 AWMA Program speakers include Amy Sheppard, Yumi Stynes, Deborah Cheetham, Kween G, and Kim ‘Busty Beatz’ Bowers, along with an Awards Concert that traverses Opera, Roots, Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock and even a “Guitarmagedon”.

The two-day program is an integral part of AWMA’s long-term goal in continuing to nurture a strong and dynamic hub of conversation for women, First Nations, Multicultural artists and members of the LGBTQIA community to share knowledge, inspire and thrive!

This year, four forums featuring industry leaders from across the sector and diverse opinion makers will be held in conjunction with the Awards Ceremony, Concert and Party at the Brisbane Powerhouse on October 8 & 9.

Building on the wave of support for change embraced by the inaugural AWMAs in 2018, this year’s event welcomes noted broadcaster, musician, writer, teacher, philanthropist and trans man Eddie Ayres as the 2019 Keynote Speaker.

“Our 2019 keynote speaker, Eddie Ayres, is part of a hopeful vision for the future of women and diverse people in positions of power and creative control. Because we are at a crossroads of dynamic possibilities for inclusivity, AWMA’s vision is to lead with generosity, to insist that our society benefits when musicians and those who work with them are empowered from a diversity of places, cultures and identities.”

AWMA Founding Executive Director
