Identifying role of music industry in wider social policy challenges
Music Victoria will develop relationships across Government to identify and promote the role that music can play in addressing wider social issues. This could include, for example, the role of music in promoting mental health.
Music Victoria is providing a strategic and representative voice for the Victorian music industry at the state and national level to ensure that there is a co-ordinated response to emerging issues faced by the industry as well as responding to other economic and cultural opportunities.
Music Victoria is currently advocating the interests of the industry on critical bodies such the Liquor Control Advisory Council (LCAC), the Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) and the Arts Industry Council of Victoria. It is also strengthening its relationship with Arts Victoria and developing its relationship with Regional Arts Victoria, Tourism Victoria, the City of Melbourne, and local councils.
Research, Information and Education
Music Victoria will undertake its survey of industry trends and needs each year in order to track the development of the industry in Victoria and identify policy and industry development needs. Its research will be specific and issues-based and will not seek to duplicate research already undertaken elsewhere.
