Join us for an evening with keynote speaker Grace Kim, concert pianist, artistic director and music educator. Grace will give a short performance on her piano and discuss learning differences together with Jane Wearn, principal psychologist of Sensory Concerts®️.

Grace is a Winston Churchill Fellow, mother of two young children and an advocate for music education. She founded Sensory Concerts®️ to provide quality classical music concerts for children and adults with sensory/special needs. Grace was a national finalist in 2018 AusMumpreneur Award in 2 categories: Making a Difference, and Big Idea Award. She also was nominated for 2019 Autism Spectrum Australia Recognition Award in the Advancement Award category.

In 2006 she performed before Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands and Australian Governor General Major General Michael Jeffery at the 400th anniversary celebrations of Dutch-Australian contact. In 2007/08 she was the Artistic Director of the Summer Concert Series in the celebrated Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Returning after living and working in the Netherlands for eight years, Grace is now based in the Blue Mountains and Sydney.

Grace also makes her debut as an author, with "Noah's Story" written together with her son, about life with Asperger's Syndrome.

Unique "Dutch" location
