Following a 2 year hiatus, The Seed Fund Workshop is back in 2019.
Established by musicians Danielle Caruana and John Butler in 2005 The Seed Fund is a philanthropic fund, funded by artists for the Australian music arts community.
Since its inception in 2005, The Seed Fund has offered support to Australian artists and industry workers from all backgrounds, providing the support and know-how to become self-sustaining in the music industry.
“Knowledge is power. In the isolation of being a self-managed artist, one can become completely disenfranchised. The entire Seed team delivered a safe space to inspire, and bestow their message to us, one of hard work, passion and experience. I left The Seed feeling recharged and empowered to move forward.”Gabby Huber (Maples)

The Australian music industry is a delicate ecosystem at risk of total collapse unless it receives critical life support. The success of Australia’s live music industry lies in the people who make the show go on - the technicians, engineers, managers, hiring companies and more - those who are COVID’s invisible victims.
