A creative and sustainable music culture for all.
MusicNSW is the state music body in NSW. We are a not-for-profit organisation, funded by Create NSW.
MusicNSW believes that a sustainable and thriving music community in NSW is essential for telling the stories of our people. Music gives voice to our existence, enriches our lives, shows us who we are, and brings our communities together.
Enabling musicians to share our many stories with the world is the core value underpinning our activities. MusicNSW’s programs and services empower and develop our music communities so that diverse NSW artists and industry can thrive locally, across Australia, and internationally.
MusicNSW empowers musicians and industry through:
- Professional and skills development opportunities
- Providing access to cutting-edge knowledge, ideas and information for self-learning
- Giving trusted advice and appropriate referrals
- Providing funding across a range of targeted grant programs
MusicNSW connects musicians and industry through:
- General and tailored networking events
- Showcasing industry leaders to emerging and mid-career musicians
- Profiling industry professionals to our membership
- Bringing industry together for facilitated consultation
MusicNSW acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we work; the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. We give respect to Elders past, present, and emerging and extend those respects to the First Nations people of NSW and beyond.
