National Cultural Policy
Australian Contemporary Music Industry’s joint submission to the National Cultural Policy
Eighteen music industry bodies from the Australian contemporary music industry have united to propose an ambitious plan to the Australian Government’s National Cultural Policy.
At the centre of this plan, the music industry calls for the creation of a new Federal music development agency to oversee strategic investment and policy development to realise our industry’s potential as Australia’s biggest cultural export and largest domestic creative industry.
Right now, the Australian contemporary music industry faces critical workforce, workplace, investment and market challenges. This bold plan and strategic investment is needed to support:
- First Nations music priorities
- Immediate investment and support
- Supercharge policy and investment: ‘Music Australia’
- Strong intellectual property framework
- Visibility and prominence of Australian music content
- National catalyst for live music with a tax offset
