A research team from Queensland Conservatorium, Curtin University and the University of South Australia are inviting input from musicians across the country to capture information on how musical careers are navigated. It will be used to build professional frameworks for professional training, lifelong learning and sustainable careers.
The survey of 1000 working musicians forms a core part of the study ‘Making Music Work’ to create a comprehensive and detailed picture of the working lives of portfolio musicians in Australia.
The study, supported by the Australian Council, Create NSW, Creative Victoria, Culture and the Arts (WA), the Music Trust and an ARC Linkage Grant, is led by Chief Investigators: Brydie-Leigh Bartleet, Scott Harrison, Paul Draper, Vanessa Tomlinson, and Christina Ballico at the Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre; Dawn Bennett at Curtin University and Ruth Bridgestock at the University of South Australia.
