Event Details

OKENYO has been described as ‘equal parts Frank Ocean, Grace Jones and M.I.A’. Her voice is bewitching and she pushes the boundaries of electronic soul and pop. She is best known for the song Woman’s World from her debut album The Wave and has just released the new single Hang Your Hat. OKENYO proudly shows her vulnerability and her strength through her lyrics. Catch this star on the rise.

Rapper, poet and author Omar Musa and artist Abdul Abdullah speak about how self-expression, creativity and story-telling has given each a powerful ‘voice’ to explore issues of identity and culture in modern Australia. After the talk hosted by Brooke Boney, Omar performs a selection of his blisteringly eloquent poems. Then, OKENYO will blow you away with her electronic soul and powerful voice.

Topical talks and live music are just part of the entertainment each evening. Stay for a free drawing workshop. Vivid Art After Hours events are free and everyone is welcome. While you’re there, catch the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prize 2019 exhibition too (admission prices apply).
