NANC is a community of artists and creatives who have a strong connection with Western Sydney and their focus is making a space for women, transgender and non-binary people in the unwelcoming and male-dominated music scene. They aim to provide a platform for these people to perform live, have their music distributed, and feel part of a safe environment.
“Parramatta in Retrograde” features a massive lineup of musicians, installations and performances. The multi-artform mini-festival responded to a need for real self-determined space making in the music scene, centred in Western Sydney.
Here’s what the collective had to say about their first event:
Alessandra – “It was great to be a part of such a welcoming & positive community event. I’m extremely excited for the future of the collective and hope we can foster the feeling of community even further.”
Jess – “I feel so happy that we were able to provide a safe and inclusive environment for our artists and community to come together in. looking forward to much more!”
Lili – ““Working with the New Age Noise Collective has allowed me to develop and refine my skillset while working towards initiatives that align with my morals and ethics.”
Grace – “i think it’s terrific that we’ve made our presence known and i’m incredibly excited about what the future has in store for the collective”
