Congratulations to the recipients of Creative Recovery Fund grants, we applaud all 190 successful applicants!
The Creative Recovery Fund's aim is to provide a financial contribution to our songwriters and composer members to support the creation of new works and the development of new projects.
COVID-19 has caused widespread economic devastation to the Australian and New Zealand music sectors, and we wholeheartedly thank all 1,662 eligible applicants who took the time to submit an application and share their story.
As an organisation we are acutely aware of the stress and uncertainty that so many of you are currently feeling in this year of pandemic, natural disaster, economic turbulence and transformational social change. The Creative Recovery Fund was launched to provide assistance during this challenging time and it's gratifying to see how much incredible creative work is being undertaken.
Please remember that you can claim royalties for Australian or New Zealand based live performances of your works, streamed on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube. Submit reports by 31 January 2021 for performances taking place by 31 December 2020.
And, if you're experiencing a financial crisis, you're encouraged to apply for Support Act's Crisis Relief. If your ability to work has been impacted by COVID and you are a musician, crew or music worker, you may be eligible.
