More Talk, Less Action

It's time we talked about music.

More Talk, Less Action is a series of panel discussions held at Westspace Gallery during the second half of 2013. Each event consists of a panel discussion and performances from a range of artists, writers, promoters and thinkers. We  aim to encourage both critical discourse and open discussion amongst practitioners and audiences alike, in a serious yet friendly and entertaining environment.  All events held at Westspace, Level 1, 225 Bourke Street, Melbourne.
