The Summers Night Project is a composers mentoring program established in 2018 by musicians Cat Hope and Gabriella Smart, with the support of new music organization Tura New Music. The project aims to support and mentor emerging Australian composers identifying as women to create new compositions for performance, with the aim of growing the gender diversity of composers in music programs Australia-wide. Three new works were workshopped, recorded then performed on a short tour of Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, Australia in July 2018. Three composers were chosen from a national call-out and the works were performed by an ensemble consisting of members from the Decibel and Soundstream new music ensembles.
