Creative Fusions two-day cross-cultural music program

QPAC Creative Fusions 2022 group of music students with instruments.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT.

Creative Fusions is an inspiring two-day cross-cultural music program for music-makers and singers of all levels aged 10 to 100! Designed to build bridges between cultures and communities, forge new creative pathways and showcase new sound fusions, participants will jam and learn to improvise, collaborate and perform with experienced Queensland-based teaching artists from diverse cultural and creative backgrounds. Developed in partnership with Sounds Across Oceans (SAO) and led by SAO artistic director Dr Anthony Garcia the program aims to foster an ethos of cultural inclusion and authenticity and promote creative musical experimentation in a safe and supportive environment for people of all ages and backgrounds.

No matter what your instrument – from Chinese zither or African Djembe, to jazz guitar, classical violin, didgeridoo, or singing – you will be able to immerse yourself in two days of music-making heaven where you will learn how to jam in groups, create new sounds and songs, and learn about other cultures and styles. This community initiative is intergenerational, so ideal for individuals, friends and families.

Creative Fusions will culminate in a live performance as part of a new music festival initiative, The Ground Beneath Us on Sunday, 29 May 2022 at the Melbourne Street Green where participants will jam, showcase original compositions and new arrangements.
