Kween G is a strong advocate of women’s representation within the music industry and currently sits on the advisory panel of the Australian Women in Music Awards.
In her various capacities, Kween has developed a significant network through her music, broadcasting and facilitation and she has worked for 15+ years as a producer/presenter and is a qualified trainer in community radio. Kween G is also in demand to host and contribute to large scale events – Sydney Festival, Africultures Festival, Ethics Centre debate - IQ2, Marrickville Festival, Women's Scream International Poetry Festival.
Recent creative works saw Kween G in her debut theatre performance in Urban Theatre Projects Home Country 2017 and soon after headlined the sold out Pan Africa Poets Cafe-Black Girl Magic at Melbourne Arts Centre. In the same year she released the single “Who I Am” a fearless vision statement from a “Femcee” who writes to encourage us all to fiercely pursue our unique passions “until the wheels fall off”.
