Where have Melbourne Music Week’s last ten years taken us? And where will its next ten lead? As MMW commences its tenth anniversary, join us for a talk aimed at analysing the idea and impact of the annual music week in promoting a city’s music culture.

In doing so, Dr Andrea Baker, lecturer and author of ‘The Great Music City’, will be accompanied by sustainability-focused councillor Cathy Oke; Look Out Kid co-director Nick O’Byrne; Bakehouse Studios co-founder Helen Marcou, and Yorta Yorta poet, musician and activist Neil Morris.

In what is sure to be, among other things, a vital discussion of MMW’s history and future potential, we encourage all to attend, listen and contribute.

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
