Produced by QMusic, the Queensland Music Awards is proud to open the inaugural Innovation Award to acknowledge and celebrate those who found a way to not just survive in music, but create new and innovative ways to thrive in 2020 and beyond.
Who’s who in the music zoo and what do they do? Gold Coast musicians and music businesses are invited to meet, mingle and learn at Fenech Guitars in Miami on Tuesday, 25 June.
Gold Coast Music Awards, Gold Coast Arts & Culture and Blank GC will host the informal networking session before guests hear from a panel of representatives from peak bodies servicing musicians.
Attendees will receive a welcome drink on arrival as well as finger food and entertainment from local musician Josh Lovegrove.
The panel conversation will focus on exploring the services and organisations available to emerging musicians, with the speakers list comprised of QMusic CEO Angela Samut, Director of Arts and Culture at City of Gold Coast Libby Lincoln and Andrew Tuttle from APRA AMCOS.
Following the panel conversation, Aaron Fenech will provide a tour of his guitar-making workshop and other Fenech Guitars facilities.
