The Music Industry's 2022 shared priorities are in the process of being finalised having been developed through wide sector consultation including a policy position survey and will be made available here soon.
Music Victoria are also supporting Green Music Australia's No Music On A Dead Planet is a campaign to demand climate action by our governments. You can find out more and buy the t-shirt here.
Together with fifteen national art and culture peak bodies, Music Victoria is participating in a values based messaging campaign that drives awareness and influence in the lead up to the Federal election.
We invite everyone in the creative industries to join the campaign and share the Essential and Everywhere messages which can be tailored to your audience. We are using the term "music" but other participants are using "arts and culture", "entertainment", etc.
Here we want to emphasise the breadth and reach of music. Music can be found in every part of Australia; every state and territory, metropolitan and regional, it's at home, at the pub, in your car, in the gym, at a festival, at the shops, indoors, outdoors, and in your ears. It engages a huge cross section of the Australian population in its many forms and enriches lives whether people work in the sector or are a participant, a listener or audience member.
Here we want to highlight the importance of music. Music is critical to so many other parts of our economy. Music is how we project our national image. Music is entertainment, diversity, mental wellbeing, childhood development, employment, tourism, and much much more.
Her we want to get people to think about which party and/or candidate supports Australian music the best.
