SEMINAR: UWA School of Music presents Free Research Seminar
|UWA School of Music presents Free Research Seminar : Claire Stokes - Making Music Sustainable
It is widely understood that music, and indeed all arts, are a critical part of society and we simply could not live without it. However, the way it is funded and supported in Australia is not set up in a way that ensures sustainability. Individual artists are expected to be entrepreneurs as well as artists, often without the necessary knowledge, skills, and networks.
This presentation explores these ideas in the context of a new foundation, Arts Initiative Australia, and introduces specific examples of innovative projects that support the sustainability of music in Australia. It also offers some frameworks for discovering and clarifying purpose and impact in artistic endeavours.
Claire Stokes is a lecturer and researcher at the Centre for Social Impact UWA, as well as managing the Centre’s engagement activities such as the Social Impact Festival. Also a freelance musician and pre-concert talk speaker, Claire was previously Program Manager at the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
