BLAKSOUND is hitting our shores this September with a mammoth lineup of speakers and curators already announced but they’ve now shared the full 2021 program which includes some of the biggest names in music with the likes of Sycco, Christine Anu, Ziggy Ramo, Baker Boy and so many more.
Presented by Digi Youth Arts and Vyva Entertainment, as well as supported by QMusic and BIGSOUND and co-curated by a selection of young First Nations artists, BLAKSOUND covers a significant amount of ground between the 6-8th September on a virtual basis with a heap of panels, talks and workshops from some of the country’s most important First Nations figures, discussing a wide range of important issues that affect the wider First Nations communities and changing the conversation in society.
“I’m so pumped to be part of BLAKSOUND! Having a dedicated space for Mob to showcase and learn within our own circle is so powerful and necessary for artistic direction in our community. I’m most keen for young mob who will be taking notes and finding inspiration from our showcasing and Legacy artists” – DOBBY (co-curator)
