Song Cycles

A joint research project of the Australia Council for the Arts and the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), which shows that attitudes, physical distance, training and education are among the significant barriers that prevent Indigenous artists from reaching wider audiences.

As the first research project of its kind, Song Cycles suggests ways to combat the challenges of training, playing live, recording, airplay, distribution and touring faced by Indigenous musicians. The research suggests this could be done by creating an environment that fosters artistic development, ensures fair compensation to composers, song writers and music artists, improves access to the mainstream market and develops a touring festival network.
