Live Music Professionals is here to help practitioners from across the state succeed and create a sustainable business that supports live music. If you’re a Victorian independent promoter, venue owner, booker or venue manager then this program is for you!
Successful applicants to the Live Music Professionals program will be coached in key areas tailored to their individual or business needs. They’ll also be involved in opportunities such as:
- Being matched with professional coaches for one-on-one sessions
- Attending music conferences and small group workshops
- Having access to physical and digital networking opportunities.
All of this, while working on an identified area of support which will be finalised before the project start-date.
Applications are now open from the applications page. Music Victoria will select 10 applicants in each of the two coaching streams as outlined below. The first round of the program will run from August to November 2016.
In order to apply for the Venues stream, applicants must be involved in a venue which supports original, live music and hosts a minimum of 12 original live music performances each year. Applicants must be one of the following:
- The venue owner
- The venue manager
- The band booker for the venue.
Independent Promoters stream
In order to apply for the Independent Promoters stream, applicants must have been running regular events for at least the past 12 months and in that time have run events independently, outside of working for a major promoter or venue.
