Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley said “Our multifaceted Music Works initiative aims to strengthen our industry at all levels – from artists and venues to labels, managers and those working behind the scenes. The Music Passport stream focuses on supporting local musicians and music businesses to forge international connections and create new opportunities. I encourage you to find out more about the program and explore new ways to ensure your music 'works' in Victoria, and right across the globe."
