QMusic is Queensland’s music industry development association, and is focused on promoting the artistic value, cultural worth and commercial potential of Queensland music. As part of their dedication to generating creative and economic returns to artists, they have created Industry Connect.
Industry Connect is a new music program bringing music industry professionals from around Australia to regional Queensland to help anyone interested in building a sustainable career in the music industry. The program is designed to help early/intermediate career musicians and workers get the knowledge, relationships and opportunities they need to succeed, and runs on the Gold Coast until November. The program also provides showcase opportunities throughout the year for musicians, while travel grants can help to bring you to BIGSOUND in September 2017.
Did we mention it’s free?
As well as partaking in the excellent networking opportunity, participants will learn real life music industry skills such as how to take their songwriting to the next level, how to successfully promote music on digital platforms, how to apply for funding, run a successful tour, build a team, manage their own career and a great deal more.
Whether you want to be touring musician, artist manager or understand how to book a venue, be a music publicist or start your own record label, Industry Connect is all about arming you with the knowledge and resources to make the right decisions and connect you to the right people.
Registrations for Industry Connect Gold Coast workshops are now open. Plug in. Skill Up. Amplify.
QMusic is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
