Old Media, New Media with Melbourne International Jazz Festival

June 30, 2020

I spoke on a career development panel for Melbourne International Jazz Festival earlier this month, as part of the iconic institution’s online music and learning festival.

The panel was hosted by the festival’s own Dean Worthington, who brings over a decade’s worth of arts sector wisdom. I was joined by some absolute powerhouses: music journalist Michael Dwyer, Lior Albeck-Ripka (co-founder of artist and events agency Hear Them Holler, and also a key player at Festival of Jewish Arts and Music, Sarah Guppy (the brains behind This Much Talent, Gig Life Pro and all-round music PR lord).

It was a fascinating chat about publicity, telling artist stories, communities plus my thoughts on why the idea of ‘gatekeepers of culture’ in the music space is problematic. (I have so many thoughts about Blackout Tuesday.)

Watch our chat below (please enjoy my not-staged-at-all-what-are-you-talking-about Zoom background) and find out more about the wider digital festival here.
