Brisbane singer songwriter Clea has been celebrated in Fortitude Valley today with the unveiling of her 2019 Queensland Music Awards Song of the Year plaque for her single 'Dreaming'.
The inaugural Australian Women in Music Awards (AWMA) takes place at the Brisbane Powerhouse next month, and is set to be an historic event, championing visibility, inclusion and celebrating and acknowledging achievements of women in Australian music.
Alongside the Awards Ceremony, the AWMA has lined up a stellar program taking place at the Powerhouse over 9 - 10 October, including the Queensland premiere of the lauded documentary Her Sound, Her Story.
Pushing women to the forefront, Her Sound, Her Story is an intimate conversation unveiling the personal experiences, histories and the significant social impact women have within the Australian music industry. Featuring conversations with over forty women this one-of-a-kind all-female narrative is brimming with inspiration, strength and creativity. This powerful conversation extends beyond the music industry, and asks 'where do we want women’s voices to sit in the world today’?
Following the film there will be a Q&A with film makers Michelle Grace Hunder and Claudia Sangiorgi Daliomore with facilitator (and Aussie pop icon) Kate Ceberano, who is an AWMA Patron and also features in the film.
In addition, the Powerhouse will host an extensive photographic exhibition of stills associated with the film.
The AWMA screening of Her Sound, Her Story takes place on Tuesday 9 October and is free to attend, but registration is essential.
