WHAT IS THE VICTORIA MUSIC STRATEGY?
The City’s draft Music Strategy outlines the role of music in Victoria, and a series of recommendations to grow the music sector. It identifies opportunities for the City to reinforce the uniqueness of Victoria's music scene, including talent, spaces and infrastructure. Some of the actions include opportunities for the public to continue experiencing musical encounters, and prioritizing access and support for underrepresented communities to nurture talent and share culturally diverse music practices.


HOW WE GOT HERE
In 2017, the City Council adopted the Create Victoria Arts & Culture Master Plan, to nurture conditions for creativity to flourish. Developing a Music Strategy is one of the key priorities identified in Create Victoria.

Since 2019, the City, Music Advisory Committee and Sound Diplomacy have been researching, analyzing and engaging the community on what is needed to better support the music scene.

Sound Diplomacy completed a music ecosystem study in early 2021 that informed the action items in the strategy.
