Each year APRA AMCOS representing 100,000 members allocates 1.75% of APRA’s distributable revenue to fund hundreds of initiatives across the music industry in Australia and New Zealand. You might not know that a slice of the licence dollar your Hotel is paying is going directly back into your WA community and we thank you. Some of the projects in Western Australia you might want to check out:

  • To give Broome's vocal composers an opportunity to have their works played live to air and distributed on radio, online and on TV APRA AMCOS part-funded 'A Taste of Broome' a multi-arts performance, cuisine and culture project. 
  • To help music-skills development in regional Western Australia APRA AMCOS has part-funded the Country Music Club of Boyup Brook’s workshops as part of the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival
  • To help bring together well-known indigenous performers Mark Atkins and Stephen Pigram to a regional ensemble APRA AMCOS has offered a small grant to Tura New Music to run the 2018 Kimberley Echo Tour. The tour includes both free and ticketed concerts with schools workshops and other community engagement. 
  • To encourage new compositions through mentoring APRA AMCOS part-funded the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra Composer in Residence program. 

APRA AMCOS supports the Western Australian Music (WAM) festival and the Western Australian Music conference. These showcases, roundtable events and Awards encourage excellence in music from our largest state. 

Have a look out for the APRA AMCOS supported music activities in your local community and give yourself a pat on the back for your good music citizenship.
