The Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN), with the support of APRA AMCOS, will host a forum on the science of culture change at BIGSOUND 2018. The forum will be facilitated by Monash University’s Behaviourworks team, who have extensive experience in the research and delivery of change programs across multiple industries.
With the conclusion of funding from The Ministry of the Arts in 2017 for the flagship professional development programs RELEASE and CONTROL, AMIN will focus on delivering initiatives to improve the capacity of music industry professionals to successfully instigate and embed the changes we all want to see to the social and commercial conditions under which we work.
The BIGSOUND session with Behaviourworks will reflect on current approaches to music industry change leadership, in the context of what research says about how change can be successfully implemented. Monash University will then use data from the discussion to generate a piece of academic research about the change management issues currently facing the Australian music industry.
“We need a space in which all parties can come together in a genuine, non-judgmental discussion about the deeper issues at play and work out a way forward together,” said AMIN Chair, Joel Edmondson.
“This session will be a great opportunity for people who see themselves as change-makers in the Australian music industry to get the professional development they need to make the change they want to make,”
“AMIN is committed to providing these opportunities as a way of trying to work together to break the deadlock around some of the entrenched cultural challenges our industry has so far been unsuccessful in changing”.
AMIN is also currently working on a long-term plan to deliver leadership training to music industry professionals in Australia.
