The Story-Tellers – Cultural Leaders Speak Out

Throughout WOW at Festival 2018 and across the arts and cultural program for the 2018 GC Commonwealth Games, women performers, creators and collaborators from many Nations will tell the stories from their tribes. But where does control of the ‘narrative’ really lie in contemporary story telling? And in the fallout of the 2017 international outcry about the behaviour of male leaders in the screen industry, how does the cultural economy of the 21st Century need to change? Hear the views of leading creators, including  those involved in producing work for the 2018 celebrations Busty Beats (Hot Brown Honey’s), Ruth/Sishona Kish (Digging Roots),  Lou Bezzina (Bleach Festival) chaired by Director of Screen Queensland Tracey Viera
