Harpoon Harry Thursday Night Live With the Ladies Network

Every Thursday night during Vivid, Harpoon Harry will present "Thursday Night Live" — a night of emerging and established live electronic acts with supporting DJs. Tonight The Ladies Network will add their femme touch to the program!

You may be familiar with the art exhibitions or hang out days hosted by The Ladies Network but it's been a while now since they have presented us with their much loved music event, 'Ladies Live'. In line with their exhibitions and their online presence, they aim to include a mix of emerging and established local artists in their line-ups, all of whom are female-identifying or gender-fluid. Their events in the past have included talented genre-mixing artists such as NOIRE, Rookie, Okenyo, Kimchi Princi and Phoebe Twigg. 

The Ladies Network was formed when Lara Vrkic decided to act on the lack of female representation in the arts. She would find herself at art shows and gigs surrounded exclusively by the work of men and it was here that her brain started to tick. She had two options: drink away the annoyance of gender imbalance or do something to even the playing field. Thankfully she chose the latter and started The Ladies Network. Since 2015, they have been organising events that support and recognise the creative contribution of women in the areas of art, music, business and design. They have evolved into a multifaceted creative agency whose offerings include art exhibitions, online art store and music events — like this one!

A thriving hub, The Ladies Network celebrates feminist causes, showcases talent and reclaims the female voice.
