Join Joshua Santospirito to celebrate the largest art project of his life at the book launch, performance and exhibition opening of art from the new graphic novel about migration and family.

The beautifully hand-drawn true story of his visit to the Aeolian Islands of Italy with his parents to seek out past connections and family roots. Joshua and his father hope to locate the burial place of Joshua’s great-great-grandfather on the island of Salina. But it’s not always so easy to find the past you’re looking for, nor to travel with your parents.

Launch Event will include :
– Short storytelling performance by Joshua and Natalya Bing based on the book;
– Book to be launched by the awesome Nunami Sculthorpe-Green;
– Art exhibition opening of art from the book, and related to the book, some of which is for sale.

Copies of the book will be for sale on the night and throughout the exhibition, but they are ALSO available at all good bookstores around the island of Lutruwita. Out from July 2 nationwide through Scribe publications. 

This event is happening on the stolen land of the Muwinina people. 
We pay our respects to the Palawa people of Lutruwita, their connection to their lands and their ongoing storytelling traditions.

Bust out ‘80s dance movie bangers with a bev!

Amanda Hodder

Belt out all the best bangers from 80s dance movies – think Fame, Footloose, and Flashdance! The wonderful Glee Club team will lead this casual and fun singalong event with bevvies and snacks available throughout the evening.  

A night with Glee Club is like a fun choir without the ongoing commitment! We encourage all to participate – whether you’re a regular singer, feel a bit rusty, or have never sung in public. We just love getting together for a bit of raucous fun. 

Your event host, Amanda Hodder, will accompany the group on keyboard and get everyone revved up and into the theme. She may even throw in a bit of song trivia for good measure. Amanda is comfortable leading singing groups of all experience levels, and her contagious energy will have everyone on board in no time. 

There will also be a prize for the best ’80s-themed outfit of the night! So, get your mates together and reminisce on the days of huge hair and huge tunes.

What so you get when you combine trivia and singing?

Vicky Jacobs

Combine your love of trivia and singing at Song Trivia! The popular event is back, hosted by the energetic Vicky Jacobs from Glee Club along with her choir, Glee Plus

It’s not just about music trivia – we’ve got questions about history, culture, travel, and science, too, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. What makes our trivia night special is the choir, who will sing some of the questions, answers, and even bits in between! And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Festival of Voices event without the opportunity for a singalong. So, if you feel like joining in, be sure to warm up your vocal cords! 

Glee Plus

Everyone is welcome at this all-ages event, and drinks and snacks will be available for purchase. Whether you’re flying solo or coming with a crew (teams must be 8 or fewer people), grab your individual tickets below and join the fun!

With something for everyone at Song Trivia, don’t miss out on this event that sells out every year.

A short Workshop with the talented Jen Lush, turning poetry into song

Jen Lush

In this fun, explorative and inclusive workshop, experience the myriad ways that words can fly off a page and transform into song, with a room full of open minds and willing voices.

Is there a poem you love and would like to transform into a song? Have you always wanted to sing your favourite poem? Would you like to delve into poetry and discover its possibilities for music?

When crafting a song, music often precedes words – or words become malleable to the musical structure. However, what if the process is flipped? What if the words are fixed within the structure of poetry, challenging the music to adapt and complement them?

Led by Jen Lush, this workshop will guide participants through the fascinating process of transforming contemporary poetry into song, fostering collaboration and creative exploration. Participants will have the opportunity to select a poem—either their own or from a curated collection—and delve into the process of turning it into a song. From there, we’ll discover how musical interpretations can convey the essence of a poem and resonate with a broader audience.

Often described as the heart and soul of the Festival of Voices, the bustling Singers’ Lounge is one of our most beloved features! Here, you can reconnect with old friends and meet new ones while enjoying a mix of scheduled and impromptu performances into the evening.

Audiences may be treated to spontaneous performances by some of our big-name artists, and the evenings will be hosted by the wonderful Paul Jarman. These talented professionals encourage anxious altos and timid tenors to overcome performing fears and enjoy a safe, welcoming environment with our audience. The experience is always fun, surprising, and unique – truly an ultimate singers’ gathering filled with community spirit and support!

Opening Event: 6 June, 2024 – 6pm

‘Art for Takayna 2024’ at the Long Gallery is a powerful display at the intersection of visual arts and environmental activism, showcasing the natural splendour of Tasmania’s Takayna / Tarkine and the critical conservation efforts it demands.

This year’s exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists whose works—ranging from vivid paintings and intricate sculptures to evocative films and photography—explore and celebrate Takayna’s unique landscapes and rich biodiversity that are under threat from mining and logging.

As you wander through the gallery, you’ll be drawn into a world of powerful art that is a call to action — urging us to protect these irreplaceable natural treasures. The exhibition is designed to provoke thought, evoke emotion, and inspire advocacy. Each piece tells a story, and each brushstroke underscores a plea: to protect wild and ancient Takayna / Tarkine.

Join us at Bob Brown Foundation’s 2024 Art for Takayna exhibition.
