One Movement For Music Perth have created the Australian Indigenous Music Scholarship (AIMS) program focused on professional development opportunites for Australian Indigenous artists.
AIMS is a pioneering partnership between One Movement for Music Perth , WAs Department of Indigenous Affairs, Skinnyfish Music and MGM Distribution, and is supported by the WA, Victorian, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australian state governments, through their corresponding arts departments via direct support of participating artists.
The scholarship will provide succesful applicants the opportunity to showcase at One Movement Perth Showcase Music Festival as well as a time in a studio in Perth for recording and tutoring from a professional producer.
One artist from each participating state and territory will be selected by the panel to join the One Movement Showcase Music Festival, which takes place at the Perth Esplanade on October 17-18, alongside international and national acts such as Hilltop Hoods, Frankmusik, Sarah Blasko, Kate Miller-Heidke, Blue King Brown, Wolf & Cub and many, many more.
The panel will then select one of these acts as an overall winner for the program. This act will receive additional development opportunities including the chance to record a full album with a professional producer and manufacturing, distribution and marketing. Album distribution is supported by Skinnyfish Music and MGM Distribution.
Interested artists are invited to apply now by sending a short biography, MP3 and photograph to email@example.com with â€˜AIMS Application and the artist name in the subject line. More detailed information can be found at www.onemovementmusic.com/AIMS.
Artist submissions will close September 21, 2009.
