SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL MUSICIANS TO TAKE THE WORLD STAGE

Wednesday, 20 July 2016

 

NORTHERN Tablelands musicians wanting to promote and showcase their talents to overseas producers or develop contacts that could open the door to an international music career are invited to apply for NSW Government funding.

 

Local State MP Adam Marshall said the Opportunity Development Grants Program could help local musicians and their managers develop the business and networking skills required to make it onto the world stage.

 

“Our local musicians can apply for funding to help them land major tour support slots, take advantage of a unique performance opportunity or attend workshops that develop the professional skills necessary to operate at an international level,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“This funding can be used to bring our local musicians to the attention of notable producers, presenters and industry professionals with overseas connections.”

 

Mr Marshall said the success of local artists in overseas markets helped Australia’s contemporary music industry grow and evolve.

 

“The NSW Government wants to help get our musicians ready to take on the world and I urge talented musicians to submit an application,” he said.

 

Musicians can apply for up to $850 for each person named in an application, to a maximum total of $5,500 per group.

 

Round 2 applications are open and close on Tuesday 6 September. Full application details are available at www.musicnsw.com

 

The Opportunity Development Grants Program is administered by MusicNSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
