Inquiry into music industry conducts first public hearing in Sydney: Friday 2 November 2018
House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts will
hold a public hearing in Sydney on Friday, 2 November 2018 for its inquiry into
the Australian music industry.
The Chair, Mr Luke Howarth
MP, said the Committee will examine the potential for continued growth and the
factors affecting the success of the Australian music industry, both
domestically and internationally.
The Committee will hear
from a range of peak bodies, such as the Australian Recording Industry
Association (ARIA), that represent and support artists, managers, and major
performing arts groups.
‘We are keen to hear from
organisations that are working with artists—songwriters, musicians, and others
in the industry—to strengthen and build businesses and careers. We want to hear
how we can support and grow the reach of Australian music, at home and abroad,
and gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by those working in the
industry,’ Mr Howarth said.
