to the Queensland music industry
QMusic, Queensland’s industry development organisation, has been selected as a delivery partner for Queensland Government’s stART grant program, opening on Monday 15 June at 10am (AEST), to award successful Queensland music industry applications.
Individual applicants can access $3,000 to support creative development and business activities focussed on future opportunities during the COVID recovery phase.
QMusic CEO Angela Samut said this will be a quick and valuable boost to the music industry across Queensland.
“We thank the Queensland Government for their support and investing in the music community with the stART grant program,” said Ms Samut.
“This money will support creative practice and business coming out of the devastation of the COVID19 crisis.”
Applications received by QMusic will be assessed by a panel of music industry peer assessors.
A total of $500,000 will be distributed across Queensland as part of the Queensland Government stART Program to support Queensland's independent creative practitioners, including artists, producers, designers, technicians and other arts workers.
The stART program is part of the state government's investment into Queensland’s arts and cultural sector to support Queensland independent creative practitioners including artists, artist collaborators, producers, designers, technicians, freelance and other arts workers impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Applications for Queensland music industry stART grants are open via qmusic.com.au at 10am (AEST) Monday 15 June and close 11.59pm (AEST) Monday 22nd June, 2020.
