#036 Funding Opportunities for Musicians
01 April 2022, with Shotgun Tori
“It’s not just about the money, it about a sense of self-worth”
In this episode: what’s been lost in the sector over the last two years, the Concerts SA Digital Mobility Fund (and best practices!), how the act of applying for funding can get ‘some people out of that dark place of being alone’, sharing information with other artists, unlocking the nighttime economy in our cities, and the importance of visionary leadership.
This should be required listening for any independent artist invested in their careers.
