The Seed Fund announces first ever Pozible campaign

16 Sep

From Boy and Bear to Emma Louise, The Veronicas and Holy Holy, The Seed Fund has played a major role in fostering a strong and vibrant Australian music industry. Founded by Co-Directors John Butler and Danielle Caruana, the not-for profit fund has helped more than 400 budding managers and artists transition to self-sustained professionals since its conception 11 years ago. Now, for the first time, The Seed Fund is calling on the broader public for support, and has kicked off its very first Pozible campaign.

An extraordinary selection of artists have offered their support with the likes of WA’s own Tame Impala and John Butler (plus Little May, Marlon Williams, Harry James Angus, Clare Bowditch and more) donating a range of goodies that includes contributions to the “Seedy Mixed Tape”, special video messages, merch and even intimate house concerts. Other treats for all music lovers include an autographed Maton guitar and ukulele, Chugg Entertainment tickets to massive international shows, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival VIP tickets (not usually available to the general public) and more. You’ll be spoilt for choice with how you can support Australian music.

The Seed Fund supports artists and managers across the country and all funds raised will go towards direct artist grants, initiatives and the trademark Management Workshop, an industry-renowned boot camp of knowledge-sharing between emerging managers and industry leaders.

Stay tuned for the recipients of The Seed Fund’s 2015 grants, including participants of the Management Workshop.
