Opportunities and Awards: Vogel announced, Minderoo grants and more

Big opportunities to support the music industry, plus a bumper week for writing prizes and an Australian artist flying the flag in Sarajevo.


The big opportunity this week comes from Support Act, the music industry charity offering relief during crisis. Seeing the end of JobKeeper but knowing the impact of COVID closures is still being felt, Support Act has introduced MusicKeeper and CrewKeeper (cheekily named to echo the government programs). Grants are for anyone working professionally in music from cabaret stars to riggers and they’ve already had 600 applications for help. The total pool of support is $1.2 million which should hopefully protect the careers of many artists.
