In response to COVID-19 Arts OutWest has made support of our regional music industry one of our strategic focus areas in 2021.
Through stimulus funding from the NSW Government called Arts Restart we are supporting or hosting a series of gigs around the region, with particular focus on Cowra, Cabonne and Blayney shires. These will be held April and May 2021 (the funding period).
The focus is three-fold: support local venues dedicated to live music and help develop a sustainable touring circuit; provide employment for musicians; and gig local audiences great live music experiences.
