VIC - Under Pressure: Creativity and Mental Health (Geelong)

RSVP to victas@apra.com.au

World Mental Health Day is 10 October. As part of a week of educational events throughout Victoria, APRA AMCOS is expanding its well-received event series on mental health and the music industry with a Geelong session.

Recent research has shown that there’s a high incidence of depression and anxiety within our industry. With low pay, unreliable work, long hours, bullying, stress and other factors all playing a part, keeping your head in check can often be a huge challenge – as can finding support when you need it the most.

To open up discussion about mental health, Tom Larkin, drummer from internationally renowned band Shihad and a massive advocate for mental health in the music industry, will be presenting his thoughts and sharing information and resources on the topic ‘Under Pressure: Creativity and Mental Health’. 

Also on hand for the evening to highlight upcoming industry initiatives will be APRA AMCOS Representative Jenny Branagan and Music Victoria’s all-round legend, booker and band manager Shaun Adams. Join us!

Friday December 7,  in the shade of Bridges Reserve's leafy oaks, the indie label run by Remi and Sensible J,  House Of Beige, brings the inimitable DJ MzRizk, Digital Afrika and Cool Out Sun on stage, while Oscar Key Sung and Gian Manik keep the vibe high beyond the sunset. 
Revered Indie Pop label Lost and Lonesome summon the powers of Great Earthquake, Monnone Alone, Melbourne Cans and The Icypoles on December 14, with Woody and Merve working tirelessly to provide sound support.
And finally, Hysterical Records will throw an almighty Christmas Party on December 21, utilising the awesome talents of Dianas, Shiz Bish, HoT To RoT and Pinch Points to bring peak party alongside DJs Darcy Justice and Colette.
