Music strategy to be formed

15 Jul 2013

By Sean Car

The City of Melbourne has gathered a range of members from the music community to be a part of the Music Strategy for the Melbourne Advisory Committee.

The strategy will seek to assist and support the music industry through events and campaigns by outlining ways in which council and government can best engage with the industry.

With Southbank’s bustling arts institutions, not to mention many very talented buskers, the strategy is sure to be shaped by locals.

Council has been encouraging innovative music businesses, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, promoters and artists to help provide expert advice on the current 2010 music strategy and the implementation of a new strategy for 2013-17.

Councillor and Chair of the Arts Portfolio, Rohan Leppert, said the establishment of the committee is about working together to help develop what is an integral part of Melbourne.

“From the live music venues, to the artists, musicians, producers and punters; Melbourne’s reputation for being a city of music is well established,” he said.

“If we’re going to continue to foster an environment and opportunities for the city’s music industry and creative soul to thrive and grow, we need to work with the key players involved.”

Applications are now closed. For more information call 9658 9658 or visit www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/music
