American Express are backing the Australian music industry with a grant program valued at $1,000,000
Australians love music. In fact, on average, more Australians attend live music gigs each year than sporting events. Yet despite this, small music venues, often the training grounds for emerging artists, have witnessed a steady decline in patrons and some have shut down all together.
Through The American Express Music Backers Grant Program they’ll provide a boost to the Australian music industry and the fans that support it so they can play their part to help it thrive for many more years to come.
Over the next 12 months they’re committing to support the Australian music industry by giving music venues, business, artists and fans the opportunity to share in a grant program valued at $1million.
