CONTROL: Applications open for managers, supported by WAM

1 Sep



CONTROL, the dynamic five stage program designed to help music managers from Australia and New Zealand thrive in this new music paradigm, is now calling for applications. Mid-career music managers from both sides of the Tasman are encouraged to apply.

The program is presented by the Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) and the Music Managers Forum of New Zealand (MMFNZ), and supported by Music ACT, Music NSW, Music NT, Music SA, Music Tasmania, Music Victoria, Q Music and the West Australian Music (WAM), as well as the Australian Association of Music Managers. Funding has been provided by the Australian Government and the New Zealand Music Commission.

CONTROL will incorporate two residential labs to be held near Melbourne, the first from 27-30 November 2016. Six music and business advisers including Julia Kosky (USA) Terry McBride (Canada) and Teresa Patterson (New Zealand) will work with participants on their leadership skills and business models.

CONTROL will provide participants with practical business guidance. It will include a comprehensive review of the different business models found in the contemporary music sector, as well as deep analysis of each business model brought to the lab. This will be the second time that managers from New Zealand will take part in the program. Applications close 30 September 2016.
