Update - May 23 2011
IBSA is conducting a research project to identify the size, characteristics and economic contribution of casual, informally contracted musicians and technicians that work at venues that offer live music in Australia. The data will be used to identify the specific workforce development and skill needs of this sector.Thank you to all those who provided responses to Stage One of the project: The Discussion Paper Casual Music Workforce Discussion Paper.
Stage Two of the project consists of a National Survey to be completed by musicians and technicians by 8 June 2011. We are particularly interested in musicians and technicians that have been working at pubs, clubs, hotels, restaurants and/or student unions over the past twelve months. These venues offer live music, but not as their main source of revenue. Places like festivals, weddings or concert arenas are not part of this study.
We are asking stakeholders to forward the survey links below to relevant networks that include musicians or technicians in the casual music workforce. The survey will take only 5 minutes to complete and as a way to thank everyone who responds, each survey respondent can enter a draw to win a $250 gift certificate to Allan’s/Billy Hyde Music Retail Stores.
The links to the survey are below. Again, all responses must be in by 8 June 2011.
