The Contemporary Music Fund grant program provides funding support to the WA contemporary music sector across a range of activities that align to the program’s objectives.
For the purpose of this program, contemporary music is defined as music that is currently being written and recorded and/or performed, with priority given to music that is broadly understood as popular.
The program offers grants in one category:
The Objectives of this grant are to:
- Capitalise on available opportunities for the contemporary music sector;
- Contribute to the development of markets for WA music locally, nationally and internationally; and
- Ensure a strong representation of musicians and music professional from Aboriginal, regional, and cultural and gender diverse backgrounds.
