A new Music Works grant program is offering live music venues one-off grants for professional acoustic assessments, to help venues and their surrounding communities grow and prosper together.
The Good Music Neighbours Acoustic Assessment Grants program is designed to help live music venue owners be proactive about sound management.
The program offers up to $7,500 per venue in funding to obtain an Acoustic Assessment Report for the venue, supporting best practice management of live music venues as defined by the Victorian planning schedule.
Acoustic assessment reports are important first step in the process of managing and understanding a venue’s sound emissions and provide a roadmap for future noise management works. Unlike the main Good Music Neighbours grant round, no matched funding is required from venues for acoustic assessments.
The Good Music Neighbours Acoustic Assessment Grants are the latest opportunity to come out of the Victorian Government’s $22 million four-year Music Works package, the biggest and most comprehensive investment in the state’s music industry.
Applications for the Good Music Neighbours Acoustic Assessment Grants program close at 5pm on Wednesday 25 October.
