Senior music figure, and Bakehouse Studio manager Helen Marcou led the Hypotheticals team for Melbourne Music Week 2018 to discuss ‘Language and music journalism’.

Leading human rights activist and barrister Julian Burnside AO QC took the group of specially selected artists, musicians, music industry professionals and journalists – including former Neos Kosmos journalist Penni Pappas – on a hypothetical exercise where they collectively worked through a moral dilemma to help navigate future problems. This session is hosted by Sose Fuamoli.

MMW’s ‘Hypotheticals’ sessions at MPavilion were prepared by advisors Dr Catherine Strong, program manager of RMIT University’s Music Industry program and Dr Emma Rush, a philosopher who teaches ethics for creative industries at Charles Sturt University.
