LISTEN exists to spark and cultivate a conversation from a feminist perspective around the experiences of marginalised people in Australian music.
Beginning with a website to share experiences as stories, rants, ephemera and mix tapes, and leading to a printed anthology, LISTEN is here to encourage more equal participation in the music industry.
We want to become visible – historically and in the present day – in our own words, on our own terms.
LISTEN will present live events to engage the public, to showcase artists and to raise funds for an anthology to document the participation of women and LGBTQIA+ musicians in Australian underground music.
We are seeking submissions from people involved in any capacity in the Australian music industry, past and present.
We welcome submissions from all kinds of writers. Fabulous writing skills are not a pre-requisite – our focus is firmly on expression and documentation.
LISTEN values: Equality, Fairness, Justice, Education, Inquiry, Innovation, Interconnection, Inclusion, Honesty, Respect and Compassion
