MusicNSW will employ local music champions to be brokers within their towns, strengthen relationships between local industry, artists and council, and support local original music.
ARE YOU PLUGGED-IN TO YOUR LOCAL MUSIC SCENE IN REGIONAL NSW? MUSICNSW WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
MusicNSW has unveiled a new program that will focus on the development and sustainability of music communities in regional areas of the state.
In an effort to “revitalise” music in regional NSW, MusicNSW is currently looking for four individuals to take part in a year-long program as Regional Music Officers.
They will be “employing local music champions to be brokers within their towns, strengthen relationships between local industry, artists and council, and support local original music with the support of MusicNSW”.
The roles will be approximately two days per week over a twelve-month period, with each Regional Music Officer providing “advice, support and resources to artists and industry based in regional areas who might not otherwise have access to MusicNSW’s services”.
“We’re thrilled to be launching this new pilot program focused on the development and sustainability of regional music communities in NSW,” MusicNSW’s Managing Director Emily Collins said.
“We’ll be employing local people to help foster their music scenes by working with and connecting local artists, venues, schools, audiences and local organisations over 12 months, starting this June.
“Often much of the conversation, funding and support is focused on metro areas – but MusicNSW is committed to making sure there is equity across NSW and look forward to having a deeper engagement with towns and cities in regional areas.”
Applications are now open until May 14, and you can find more details here.
