Interviews for the Music Industry Review into sexual harm, sexual harassment and systemic discrimination will commence on February 28.

Focus groups, meanwhile, begin from February 24.

Focus groups will be made up of no more than 15 people, with two review team members present. Its success relies on all participants agreeing that what is said in the room, stays in the room.

Each group will generally run for 60 to 90 minutes on Zoom during business hours, however some will take place outside this schedule.

There will be specific identified groups such as women-only groups, First Nations groups and LGBTQI+ groups for people to feel more comfortable to contribute.

You can register for the various focus groups here.

Confidential interviews are also available and can take place via phone or Zoom. They can be booked here.

It’s also possible to send in a written submission to [email protected], or participate in an industry-wide survey which will be available at a later date.

The review needs the participation of music industry professionals, including songwriters and composers, artists and performers, crew, agents, members of live touring companies and record labels, promoters, employees of record companies, managers, publishers, venue managers and staff, and company executives.

Those conducting the review reminded people that ‘Your voice matters’.

“By contributing to the review, your voice, which may have been silenced in the past, will be elevated.

“Your voice will help shape the findings and recommendations of the review and, importantly, influence reform across the music industry,” the group said.

“Everyone creating and working in the music industry has the opportunity to contribute to the review. In doing so, you will help to transform the culture going forward. By sharing your voice and providing solutions for reform, you will be part of a critical change process that aims to make the industry safer, more respectful and inclusive for all,” they added.
