RECORDED MUSIC NZ Music Grants
Recorded Music NZ is keenly aware of the circumstances and difficulties many in our music community are facing as a result of Covid-19. In response, we have made the decision to suspend all Recorded Music – Music grants for 2020, and contribute what funds we have available to our industry charity MusicHelps to support its activities and the vital support its provides to our people and our industry as we navigate through this crisis.
MusicHelps can currently assist via its Wellbeing Service and the Benevolent Fund and these services are available to anyone working within the NZ Music industry:
- The MusicHelps Wellbeing Serviceis a 24 hour helpline and free professional counselling service for kiwi music people experiencing emotional distress. Call 0508MUSICHELP or email email@example.com
