By now. Governments and cities around the world recognize the essential role they play in supporting the economy during Covid-19 and kickstarting it once restrictions are lifted. It is essential that music and the creative industries are around the table when recovery plans are being drawn up.
In order to rebuild and in some cases reimagine their economies, Governments and cities need to recognize the value of music and the creative industries and relax and adopt cultures that say yes and enable creative activity and enterprise.
By drawing advanced manufacturing, music, and vibrant city agendas and integrated design thinking, Governments and industry in Australia have been working together to leverage music and the creative industries for social and economic gain.
