Finding Our Voice

Finding Our Voice reimagines the music festival.

Celebrating Australia in sound, Finding Our Voice creates a national network, commissions eight musical works and presents standalone live performances for audiences in eight locations countrywide.

Central to Finding Our Voice is the recognition that music comes from many voices; that grassroots engagement and education have significant impact by building strong, vibrant communities.

Finding Our Voice is also a digital festival, creating and sharing experiences, skills and resources online with diverse audiences and communities. Performance footage, interviews, commentary, insights into creative processes sit alongside activities stimulating participation — deepening musical engagement and equipping people to express their own creativity.

"Finding Our Voice is a definitive portrait of Australian art music now. "
