2016 Young Women's Jazz Workshops

The Young Women's Jazz Workshops are a course for emerging female artists, and they're back again for 2016 in Sydney, Perth & now Canberra!

SIMA has announced the 2016 Young Women's Jazz Workshops, and are welcoming a new city into the fold this year: Canberra. As well as taking place in Sydney and Perth, the ACT course will be overseen by guitarist Jess Green, who has recently relocated back to the nation's capital.

Speaking of Canberra, many of the other YWJW mentors originally studied in the ACT, and include bassists Zoe Hauptmann and Hannah James and composer Jenna Cave.

The course, which was founded in 2002 by both SIMA and saxophonist Sandy Evans, seeks address the shortage of women studying and working in jazz, giving young women the opportunity to learn from and engage with some of the leading female artists in the Australian scene.

Important dates

Applications for 2016 are now open! For NSW and ACT residents, applications close on June 17, with workshops commencing July 23. In WA, applications close on July 8, with workshops starting August 20. Applications can be downloaded from the SIMA website here.
