In February 2009, Q Music initiated a focus group of women from the Brisbane music community. This focus group meets on a regular basis to discuss different ideas including new ways to increase the level of engagement of young women in the music industry.

Women in Music 2011 is the first event to stem from these focus groups meetings and will be a one day forum for emerging and aspiring female artists and music industry workers.

Held in Fortitude Valley on the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day (8th March) the day will provide a combination of informative panels and practical workshops designed to inspire, educate and engage.
