FULL PROGRAM DETAILS:
THE WINNERS’ CIRCLE
Only so much can be said at the podium, under the glare of the spotlight, just moments after your name is called. So, we’re hosting The Winners’ Circle panel discussion, to hear firsthand from the previous evening’s winners as they share insight about the music, the inspiration, and the behind-the-scenes tales of how their song came to be.
Who will be there? To be revealed!
Joining us to moderate is Sydney-based journalist Poppy Reid, Managing Editor, The Brag Media.
APRA AMCOS GLOBAL REPORT
Chief Exec Dean Ormston will take members through the most recent annual review and financials, and discuss the opportunities, challenges and topics that matter to our songwriter, composer and music publisher members globally. Expect to hear about export and how we’re working with government and industry, the international support for our members and the initiatives we’re undertaking back in Australia and New Zealand.
PANEL: MENTAL FITNESS IN THE MUSIC MADNESS
A career in music can be very fulfilling, but also incredibly challenging due to required travel and unpredictable hours, working in isolation, career uncertainty and other factors. The aim of this panel is to help make mental health issues a normal conversation in the music industry. There is a real need for self-care strategies, access and connections to mental health resources and services.
Moderator Veronica Chambers, is a music publicist pursuing a degree in psychology, and she’ll lead a discussion with:
Debbie Carroll, Vice President, Health and Human Services, MusiCares
Mark Moffatt, Member Relations Nashville, APRA AMCOS
Brian Cadd, Singer/Songwriter/Performer
Dave Pomeroy, Musician/Producer; Executive Officer, American Federation of Musicians
