Input invited to help music strategy hit high note

October 24, 2017 by  

Music lovers, industry experts and community groups in Melbourne are being invited to have an input into the future of the city’s music scene.

The opportunity has emerged as the City of Melbourne pieces together the draft Music Strategy 2018-21.

According to Councillor Rohan Leppert, City of Melbourne Arts, Heritage and Culture Portfolio Chair, the new strategy will offer many benefits. These include the chance to protect and enrich Melbourne’s renowned music culture, as well as boosting the city’s status as a significant global music city.

Cr. Leppert said the council is well aware that music makes an important social, cultural and economic contribution to the city.

The latest strategy, he added, will heighten the great work undertaken as part of the 2014-17 Music Strategy and assist in providing further support to help enhance Melbourne’s music scene growth in the period to 2021. He went on to say that he encourages anyone with an interest in music in the city to give feedback and contribute towards a plan for future growth.

Key focus areas of the online survey will range from Innovation and Technology to Industry Development and Diversity and ways to use printing services and other tools and technologies to reach audiences and create new music.

Survey respondents have until November 12 to have their say.
