Help ‘Making Waves’ create a podcast series

MAKING CONVERSATION: aUSTRALIAN COMPOSERS’ PROJECT

Final hours – act fast!

Dear Friends,

I hope by now that you have heard of a very special crowdfunding campaign I have been running over the last five weeks with Making Waves partner, Peggy Polias. We’re raising funds to produce a podcast and video series of interviews with composers around Australia. While Making Waves will continue to showcase Australian music, this special project will enable listeners to get to know composers through their own words about music and creativity. With your help we can create an accessible and engaging archive for composers, their colleagues, listeners, musicians, researchers, music educators and students to enjoy and share.

Thanks to an incredible show of support by the arts sector and our personal networks, the Making Conversation: Australian Composers’ Project is 110% funded with a handful of hours to go before our campaign comes to an end! We’re ecstatic that our project will be going ahead and look forward to taking the next step on our journey to create a unique and insightful podcast and vodcast series centred on Australian composers.

Would you like to support this exciting project? It’s not too late to donate! The Pozible campaign link will close Tuesday May 10, 2016 at noon AEST.

As promised, all funds raised in excess of our initial $4000 goal will distributed between important project elements, such as: reimbursing our volunteer interviewers, releasing bonus podcasts and content and even a project launch event. We’re grateful for any amount of support you can provide!

The Making Conversation: Australian Composers’ Project is supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through MATCH. Thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia’s MATCH program, every dollar you give to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar.

We have some news since launching the project: we’re delighted to welcome the newest members our talented Interview Team!  We’ll be sharing a little about each later this week.  Joining  our foundation team, budding music journalist of Peggy (NSW), Lisa (VIC/QLD), Matthew (VIC), Chris (NSW/USA), Sascha (VIC) and Leah (VIC/SA) are:

With a truly national team, we so look forward to the next stage of making this project a reality. To stay tuned for more news and project updates please consider signing up to a Making Waves E-bulletin. Thank you so much for your support!

Kind regards,

Lisa
