QLD- Meet the locals: Back to business

Ready to get your affairs in order this year? We’ve brought together some of the state’s top music industry pros to share their knowledge and help you get ahead of the game in 2017.

They’ll talk funding opportunities, programs, advocacy and legal matters for songwriters, and introduce you to the organisations they represent – and how they can support your music career. A representative from the RECOGNISE campaign will also let you know how you can get involved in the call for recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Australian Constitution.

Come along, meet your fellow songwriters and get a handle on the industry so you can get back to the important business of making music!

RSVP: qld@apra.com.au
