Making your space in the music scene - Information & Cultural Exchange

Making your space in the music scene

Here’s some STUN pics from Parramatta in Retrograde, held at I.C.E., the first event curated by the New Age Noise Collective (NANC).

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”
