We would like to thank the Australia Council for the Arts for their support of the Live Music Office with today’s very welcome announcement of project funding for 2017.

Since the Live Music Office was established in 2013, a great deal has been achieved across better regulation, industry support and strategic planning for the sector thanks to our industry partners the Ministry for the Arts, the Australia Council for the Arts and APRA AMCOS, along with the many people we have worked with across the states and territories to better support artists, venues, and the Australian music scene.

Today’s funding announcement ensures the Live Music Office will continue into 2017, providing policy, strategy and sector development guidance for the live music industry and governments across the country to build on the robust body of work already delivered to date.
