Final Round of Quick Response Grants Now Open - MusicNSW


MusicNSW is excited to announce one final round of Quick Response Grants is still open for applications!

The Quick Response Grants were created to support artists and managers in developing their export and international support opportunities, and has been significant in assisting many artists in achieving their touring and showcasing goals.

This program focuses on attendance at Australian conferences and trade fairs as a means to developing relationships in international markets prior to travelling overseas, and to assist in the development of business skills and a national audience. It is also available to support career-defining opportunities that would otherwise be cost prohibitive to artists, which may consist of major support opportunities or other key showcase events.

Submissions can only be made by artists (and/ or their managers) based in NSW. All applicants must be Australian citizens or have permanent residence status in Australia.

Applications are open now, and are due on October 30, 2011.

Siberia Records, home to the acclaimed Australian three piece Midnight Juggernauts received funding to showcase their independent record label. The quick response funding allowed them to send Kirin J Callinan, No Art, Forces and Siberia DJs, as well as label manager Daniel Stricker to attend, perform and network at the conference.

Additionally, emerging electronic two piece Domeyko/Gonzalez were  also been funded for a showcase opportunity at Sound Summit, where they played at the Wormwood event and participated in a panel and networking opportunities.
