"Is Government funding effectively assisting Queensland's long-term profile as a state that recognises and nurtures innovative musical endeavour?"
Queensland is considered to be one of the nation’s major 'hotspots' for innovation and creative industry development. Australian contemporary music (abbreviated ACM for the purposes of this project) is an exciting genre encompassing immeasurable cultural influences from Australia's unique geography and history. This project investigates the efficacy of government subsidies to Queensland-based Australian contemporary music ensembles. A number of pertinent issues arise concerning the value of ACM to the community, the economy and Australian culture. Governmental, public and ACM practitioner perceptions of current funding allocations and systems are varied and often passionately held. A wide communication gulf exists between the ACM community and the funding bodies essential to their survival. As well, there seems to be a lack of cohesion within the ACM community itself. The music industry is a difficult field in which to earn a living. ACM ensembles are, almost without exception, run with in-kind support, government subsidy and occasional corporate sponsorship. Often, projects are financed from the groups’ own coffers. This project looks at the current situation, and offers some possible solutions to the many difficulties faced in this niche industry.
