WA has a long standing reputation when it comes to contemporary music. We are known for having “something in the water” with some of the most distinctive sounds emanating from this state. Contemporary music is one of our most important cultural identifiers that we have, and it makes our city more vibrant, more beautiful, more livable.
Perth is still a very isolated city. Whilst technology has changed the way (and speed) in which we connect with people, WA is still a tough place to be an artist. And in a crowded market place, being heard and noticed above the many other people making noise in this country is one of the biggest challenges facing emerging artists today.
This is where WAM comes in.
We have the knowledge, expertise and connections to guide WA artists through to the next stages of their careers.
Our Artist Development program encompasses a range of hands on learning opportunities for WA artists, which are designed to teach the important skills necessary to ensure that new and emerging acts are positioning themselves for success in a crowded market.
Talent is born – and WA artists have it in bucket loads. But it takes more than talent to achieve success in a crowded marketplace.
Your donation will directly contribute towards the delivery of this intensive and practical learning program, which is aimed at artists at all stages of their careers.
By making a donation to West Australian Music, you will play a vital role in their future success and strengthen the position of all West Australian artists.
