City of Logan develops Music Action Plan to revitalise local industry

The Logan City Council has announced a new community project to celebrate and strengthen the region’s live music scene.

Supported by a host of industry experts, the city’s first Music Action Plan will seek to identify partnership opportunities with local venues, artists and businesses to unify the area’s musical community and support the scene as a whole.

A host of workshops, a local industry forum and one-on-one meetings with artists, venues and industry professionals are also planned for the program.

The Music Action Plan will be driven by Beenleigh-born artist and writer Craig Spann, who will act as a consultant for the Logan City Council and assist in the running of the community program.

The plan launches alongside two online surveys devised by Spann, which seeks to capture the experience of local music industry workers and artists over the course of the pandemic.

Logan City lifestyle chair councilor Laurie Koranski said that the Music Action Plan would cater to all ages and would help rebuild the area’s live music scene.

“Logan City Council has hosted our Logan Live celebration of music since 2018 to foster and promote local talent. We are proud to support new and emerging talent,” Koranski said.

“There have been lockdowns, restrictions on venue capacities and border controls limiting touring. Council wants to help the industry, especially in the City of Logan, find new ways forward. We need community support and want to hear their thoughts.”

Find out more and complete the surveys via the City of Logan’s website.
