ACT- Meet the Locals + Free Legal Advice

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 grants, band agreements, song splits and funding, and introduce you to the organisations they represent – and how they can support your music career. A speed dating session at the end will give you a chance for some one-on-one time with these experts.

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.

RSVP: writer@apra.com.au
