We are excited to announce that Council has been awarded $30,000 in funding from Creative Victoria for the 2017 Leaps and Bounds Festival.
This funding will support a collection of projects specifically curated to support young music makers, emerging artists and increase engagement with Australian contemporary music through our industry development sessions. These vital funds will cultivate collaboration between Yarra Youth Services, Collarts and The Push to increase opportunities for young audiences, artists and event managers of youth music events.
It will also help create platforms for new and emerging artists to perform their work and give musicians access to workshops about the Australian music industry, led by industry professionals, in partnership with Music Victoria.
Over 17 days in July 2017, the Leaps and Bounds Music Festival will shine the spotlight on live music events in over 70 venues throughout Collingwood, Fitzroy, Abbotsford and Richmond.
