First it was Film, Now Music Comes Under Federal Spotlight

Federal Labor MPs and Senators meet NT musician Tom Snowdon at Parliament to highlight the regional music industry. L-R: Susan Templeman, Warren Snowdon, Senator Pat Dodson, Tom Snowdon, Lisa Chesters, Senator Malarndirri McCarthy, Milton Dick, Sharon Claydon and Senator Murray Watt.
Blue Mountains musicians and music industry participants are running out of time to have their say on the future of the industry as part of a national inquiry.

Federal member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman, said the Commonwealth Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts, of which she is a member, is running the inquiry.

“If you work as a musician, compose, teach, operate a venue or have any involvement in the journey people take from being students to professional musicians, then your input is welcome,” Ms Templeman said.

“And the terms of reference are intentionally very broad, so that they include all music from contemporary to classical, the live performing industry, the recording industry, copyright issues, music exporting and music education. There may well be other issues that you feel are relevant to the federal arena.

“The Mountains is full of people working in this industry, and when I held a roundtable with Labor’s Shadow Minister for the Arts, Tony Burke, there were great ideas.

“Now is the time to share them with the Parliamentary Committee, which includes MPs from both sides of politics.”

The inquiry is the second one for the Committee in the current Parliament, with the first one on the film industry, which held hearings in Katoomba.

Ms Templeman said some recommendations from the film industry inquiry were adopted by the Government in its last budget.

“So this really is a chance to influence policy now and into the future,” she said.

Ms Templeman said making a submission is as easy as jumping online and sending the Committee Secretariat an email.

“It doesn’t have to be a huge document, but if you are involved professionally in this area, we’d be keen to hear your views on what the problems and solutions are.”

Submissions close on Friday 21 September.
