MusicNSW has announced the appointment of seven Regional Music Officers (RMOs) across NSW in a move that shows one of the most significant regional music development efforts undertaken in regional NSW. The RMOs are respected local champions of music, embedded within their communities where they can focus on building capacity and relationships between local industry, artists and councils.
The move will drastically increase the reach of MusicNSW across the state, now creating a foothold within the Central West, Mid North Coast, North West and the Northern Rivers. By employing people already living and working in the regions, MusicNSW is uniquely positioned to identify areas of local industry that need attention, and leverage local knowledge to develop and deliver relevant support.
