Cultural and Economic Contributions of Live Music Making in Australia (2014)$25,000
There is a nationally recognised need for better data around live music venues. This pilot study will comprise of a survey conducted face-to-face or via email with venue owners, booking agents and other organisers of live music events in Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney. The survey will collect quantitative data on the economic value of live music venues in each location, as well as qualitative data on their operations, audiences and engagement with regulatory bodies. The project, in collaboration with the National Live Music Office will conduct thematic analysis of the qualitative data collected. At the conclusion of the pilot project, a report will include aggregate economic modelling and qualitative analysis that will describe the current state of play for the venue-based live music industries in each city. The tool used for data collection and analysis will be included in the report to enable current and future stakeholders to undertake similar research in their own locality.
