Grant support for live music

A new grant program – the Music Development Office (MDO) Project Support Grants – will see many artists, bands and live music venues who have been hit hard by COVID-19 receive funding support to continue their artistic development and help sustain businesses in the local music sector.

The MDO Project Support Grants will aid South Australian musicians who write and perform their own music as well as local music businesses who support these artists in the development, delivery or production of original music.

  • Grants of up to $5,000 will be delivered to artists focussed on creative development
  • Music businesses were able to apply for up to $20,000 for new strategies that aid their business through COVID-19, and applicants putting forward industry-wide initiatives were able to apply for up to $20,000
  • Funding for this round is $700,000
