QPAC Now Accepting Submissions for Clancestry Pathways Project 2014
The Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is calling for participants to be involved in the Clancestry Pathways Project, which has been created with support from the Newman Government's Super Star Fund.
The Clancestry Pathways Project, a partnership between 98.9FM, QPAC, Bernard Fanning and his management team, Secret Service, is a mentoring program offering 12 early career Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander song-writing artists and broadcasting interns a hands-on opportunity to spend a week in Brisbane with senior music and broadcasting industry professionals participating in workshops, discussions, media calls and recording sessions.
The successful Clancestry Pathways Project artists will receive support and encouragement from and work directly with people who are already established in the industry, including Bernard Fanning, Troy Cassar-Daley and 98.9FM's Tiga Bayles.
The week-long program will culminate in a concert performance on the South Bank Cultural Forecourt as part of the Clancestry, A Celebration of Country festival.
To apply go to either http://www.qpac.com.au/clancestry/ or http://www.989fm.com.au/ for full terms and conditions and to download the application form. Applications are open until 5pm on 24 January 2014; late applications will not be considered.
The Clancestry Pathways Project is funded through the Super Star Fund, a Newman Government Initiative and presented by QPAC and 98.9FM.
Clancestry runs from Tuesday 18 to Sunday 23 February 2014, across the Cultural Precinct, on the Cultural Forecourt, in The Courier-Mail Piazza, South Bank and around QPAC. The 2014 festival will feature a conversation series during the week, culminating in a weekend full of FREE performances, a family day, workshops and markets.
