Save Our Scene:
"We represent independent small to medium music venues across Victoria, including some of the most iconic and long-standing music venues in the country. We are not the big end of town - we are not in the business of hosting stadium tours. We are the pubs, theatres and clubs where Australian musicians get their start and hone their craft.
We are the venues where Victorian music lovers see shows not just once a year, but every night of the week. Our venues nurture the part of Victoria’s music culture that is uniquely Victorian, providing community, connectedness and wellbeing to people across the state."

Federal Petition EN1609 - Support for Australian Arts and Entertainment Workers now
There's now an official petition calling on the Morrison Government to support devastated arts and entertainment workers through the coronavirus crisis.
"The arts and entertainment industry has been devastated by shutdowns caused by the coronavirus crisis. It was the first sector to be hit, when gatherings of 500 people or more were banned, and is likely to be one of the last sectors to be released from restrictions... We therefore ask the House to Extend the JobKeeper payment to arts and entertainment sector workers who are currently ineligible; and Deliver the arts and entertainment sector a tailored and properly targeted relief package to ensure its ongoing viability."
SIGN THE PETITION
If your ability to work has been impacted by COVID-19 and you are a musician, crew or music worker, you may be eligible to apply for a Crisis Relief Grant from Support Act.
