The contemporary music industry in Western Australia (WA) creates jobs, develops talent, entertains, attracts visitors, and enriches culture. This project will identify the true cultural, social and economic value of the WA contemporary music industry, and identify ways in which the industry can be better supported to strengthen the cultural, social and economic fabric of our community. The project creates cross-disciplinary collaboration by involving researchers from two faculties (spanning five disciplines). It collaborates with industry partner WAM (West Australian Music), the peak body responsible for supporting, nurturing and growing contemporary music in WA, and creates opportunities for further ongoing joint research.
