New Music Network established the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address in 1999 in honour of one of Australia's great international composers, to be held in Perth for the first time. This year, the speaker is the performer, artistic director, writer and arts advocate, Nicole Canham, who draws upon her unique and expansive creative practice to outline a vision for an inspiring, passionate and connected new music community in this year’s PGH address.

The Poetry of the Present celebrates the possibilities that come from embracing change. The successes, opportunities and struggles that form a part of many creative people’s lives – often framed in terms of the decline of many cherished ideas, beliefs and values – seem to be converging with a similar, society-wide anguish characterised by uncertainty and fear.

Featuring a performance by Decibel with Nicole Canham of the world premiere of a new work by Cissi Tsang, made possible by the Difficult Commission Fund. Tsang's piece, The Light That Is Waiting, for woodwind, stringed instruments and laptop, is based on taking elements of data from a photograph of The Pinnacles in Western Australia.
