There will be talking
Join us in a celebration of women’s storytelling and music making. Chaired by RNZ’s Kirsten Johnstone the panellists will discuss issues around gender perspective and the power of voicing autobiographical experiences.
This panel discussion will shed light on the importance of telling previously untold stories, and how this very act politicises the personal. Our panelists are 4 influential women song writers and performers. They will discuss the creative and political practice of telling and disseminating stories through the prism of their songs.
There will be performance
Panelists will perform a selection of relevant songs after the panel discussion.
