IN STORES THIS WEEK!
The MMF has announced that the first seminar series for 2006 will be with Gary Fortune from the Outward Sound initiative.
Outward Sound has been set up to provide assistance for market development initiatives and to encourage the entry of New Zealand music and musicians into global markets. New Zealand music industry practitioners (artists, managers etc) and firms (record companies, associated businesses) can apply for assistance through the international music market development grants programme.
Gary will be going through the details of what the Outward Sound project is and how to apply for this funding.
Outward Sound is implemented and managed by the New Zealand Music Industry Commission (NZMIC). The programme is inclusive of music from all genres, styles and niches and applicants may target relevant markets around the world. Bands, composers, songwriters, producers, companies and solo artists are able to benefit. Applicants at different stages of international market development can access the programme. The foundations of the programme are research, collaboration, network development and information sharing.
