WAM (Western Australian Music) and the PIAF (Perth International Arts Festival) have teamed up to create a free workshop entitled Music Is Activism with the aim of inspiring social, cultural and political change through the art of songwriting.
The workshop will be headed by Sydney Sikh hip hop artist L-Fresh The Lion who works with the All Together Now charity highlighting social justice issues such as racial profiling through his music. Perth’s songstress Lucy Peach will also be on the panel, a sexual health educator and strong feminist role model. The panel will be moderated by RTRFM’s Paul Van Lieshout Hunt who hosts weekly morning radio program The Mag about current affairs and community issues.
The free workshop will be held at William Street’s The Bird on Friday, February 24 from 12pm til 2pm. For more information on the event head to wam.org.au.

The first 3o to RSVP will receive free double passes to L-Fresh The Lion’s PIAF show that night at Chevron Festival Gardens, Elizabeth Quay, 8pm Friday 24 February, alongside Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes and local electronic wunderkind Kucka.
