Our LIVE AND KICKING program was region-wide and focused on live, local, original music; continuing to build a touring circuit; and supporting the venues that have a strong commitment to music events.
Arts OutWest’s Live & Kicking was a 12-month project funded by the Australian Government through Live Music Australia.
The program aimed to bolster the Central West’s live music industry at a difficult time.
Full and part-time musicians across the region lost numerous gigs due to the pandemic, so we wanted to ensure they received as much support as possible.
