The Seed fund is now calling for public support, with its very first Pozible campaign commencing September 14.
A special selection of artists have offered there support with names like Tame Impala, Little May, Marlon Williams, Harry James Angus, John Butler, Clare Bowditch plus more, donating their talent and time into a range of media including contributions to the Seedy Mixtape, hand-penned notes, video messages, merch and intimate house concerts.
Other offers include an autographed Maton guitar and ukelele, Chugg entertainment tickets to massive international shows, St Jerome’s Laneway VIP tickets and an entire years worth of free shows in Australia’s premiere venues Woolly Mamoth and 170 Russel St.
As a non-for profit organisation, all funds will go toward artist grants and the trademark Management Workshop, a bootcamp of knowledge sharing between emerging industry managers and industry leaders. And to add to the generosity this year, a new partnership has been formed between the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Music Group and Bush Bands Business.
A fundraising event at The Athenaeum Theatre will be held on October 12. Hosted by Tripple J’s Zan Rowe, and a stellar line-up featuring Missy Higgins, San Cisco, Emma Louise, Paul Kelly and John Butler Trio.
