The Street in association with Goulburn Regional Conservatorium presents MEET THE MAKERS: The Weight of Light Join Goulburn Regional Conservatorium Artistic Director Paul Scott-Williams in conversation with The Weight of Light composer James Humberstone and librettist Nigel Featherstone. Goulburn Regional Conservatorium commissioned The Weight of Light early 2015 and this session will cover the genesis, development, and making of the work. A terrific opportunity to get right inside the composer-librettist working relationship. Paul Scott-Williams Paul Scott-Williams is the current CEO / Artistic Director of the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium (GRC). Prior to taking this position in 2011 he worked for three decades as a music educator, performer, producer and director.
