Last year’s highly successful writers’ mentor program led to publications in leading Australian media outlets. In 2016, BIFEM once again commits to building a more informed critical culture around new music in Australia. Five emerging critics will receive expert mentoring across the festival and will be published daily as part of the RealTime-sponsored new music blog Partial Durations, bringing multiple readings of the activities of the festival as close to real time as possible. Selected reviews will subsequently appear in RealTime.
