17 QUEENSLAND WOMEN ANNOUNCED TO TAKE PART IN STATEWIDE MUSIC MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

QMusic, Queensland’s music industry development association, today announced 17 outstanding QMentorship recipients, including the nine emerging music industry professionals who will be mentored by eight industry experts to produce a regional tour in Far North Queensland.

QMentorship is an important initiative under QMusic's Women in Music program and supports early-career industry professionals who are pursuing a career within our industry, or who want to explore other skills for gaining employment.

QMentorship is designed to have experienced industry practitioners share their knowledge with their mentees in the areas of: business development, artist management, venue booking, tour management, sound engineering and marketing and publicity.

It is a vital capacity building program and one which will produce a tour in north Queensland showcasing local artists and injecting much needed economic activity into our regions.

Mentors and mentees are paired up for at least three 90 minute one-on-one sessions and fortnightly collaborative meetings to plan the tour circuit, develop budgets, book venues and artists and manage events.

QMusic partners with regional councils and the Regional Arts Services Network (RASN) to develop and deliver the QMentorship program.

Funding for QMentorship is from the Queensland Government via the Advancing Women in Business initiative from the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training. This initiative supports and encourages more women to start and grow their own business and attain positions of leadership.

From Cairns and Mackay, to Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Ipswich, the 2021 QMentorship recipients are:
