ACF + APRA | supporting creators of art music
Australia is home to some of the world’s most innovative and talented composers, and we want them to be heard!
DOUBLE THE SCORE
The Australian Cultural Fund (ACF) is partnering with music industry body APRA AMCOS to boost its $100,000 Art Music Fund, so more artists can create more music to share with audiences here and overseas.
In 2016, its inaugural year, the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund funded 12 established and emerging composers, including percussionist Matthias Schack-Arnott, who took out the Development Award at the Melbourne Prize for Music in 2016, and composer Liza Lim, for her major new work Wayfaring in the Weather World for renowned ensemble Klangforum Wien, based in Vienna.
Through the Double the Score campaign, your donation will support the commissioning of new music that is bold in its conception and excellent in its execution. It will give composers the space and time they need to take risks, think big and create new work that will be heard around the world.
Need more of an incentive? The Australian Cultural Fund will match your donations to Double the Score, dollar for dollar, up to $12,000. Donate $100; and the fund will get a $200 boost. Donate $1000; and next generation of music composers will receive $2000.
Our aim is to raise a further $100,000 for the fund, which will give more composers a chance to create diverse new works.
Join us as we raise money to support the development and performance of new music from Australia’s creators of extraordinary sounds.
Double the Score runs until 20 March 2017. Like all projects on the ACF, donations over $2 are tax deductible.
