A partnership between ticketing agency Moshtix and peak association Music SA is for the second time offering a scholarship for an aspiring South Australian female music industry professional in 2019.

Moshtix will fund women to obtain their Certificate IV in Music Business.

Applications are now open with the winner announced by Christmas 2018.

2018’s winner Elli Cleary received her certificate and built connections and network with business execs at events such as BIGSOUND, the AIR Awards, Umbrella: Winter City Sounds, and the South Australian Music Awards, alongside the Moshtix team.

Cleary stated,  “It’s been such an incredible year of learning and gaining experience, and I’m so grateful to Moshtix and Music SA for the endless support throughout it all.

“I’m really excited for what’s to come and I feel confident moving forward. If you’re thinking about applying, I really encourage you to do so!”

Harley Evans, CEO and owner of Moshtix said the team “really enjoyed seeing Elli Cleary’s progress through the 2018 scholarship.

“It was also terrific to be able to introduce her to some of our industry peers and friends to help her develop a network of contacts that will hopefully be of value to her as her career evolves.

“Elli has a great future in music ahead of her and we’re thrilled that Moshtix and Music SA were able to help her along the way.”

Lisa Bishop, Music SA general manager noted, “Every opportunity counts and this demonstrates that it takes one small partnership between two music businesses to bring about change for women.

“It’s an important practical part of the increased attention on closing the gender gap we’ve seen the industry focus on in the last 3 years.”

The full-time Certificate IV in Music Business course commences in February 2019 at Music SA, located at the St Paul’s Creative Centre in the Adelaide CBD.
