Earlier this year the Victorian Music Development Office (VMDO), in partnership with the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) and Association of Artist Managers (AAM), opened applications for the 2019 Fast Track Fellowship program.
Open to Victorian music artist managers and independent labels, the Fast Track Fellowship facilitates international professional development, relocates selected participants overseas and immerses them within music companies over a two-month period.
The Fast Track Fellowship program includes return flights, visas and insurance as well as financial support for accommodation, on ground logistics, per diems and registration fees for professional industry events. The two 2020 recipients will be selected by an independent industry-based advisory panel.
The VMDO will be hosting a Networking Breakfast where we’ll talk to two previous AAM Fast Track Fellowship recipients - 2018 recipient, Charlotte Abroms (Hear Hear Music) and 2019 recipient, Danae Effern (Little Giant) about their experiences.
“I came back fully inspired and confident from having worked alongside a wonderful community of like minded people. The organisational philosophy behind Everybody’s Management is similar to my own, their support by merely being in the same room was phenomenal. The AAM Fast Track Fellowship was truly a life changing experience and changed my world.” Charlotte Abroms - Hear Hear Music
Applications for the 2020 Fast Track Fellowship will be opening the morning of the Networking Breakfast, giving aspiring applicants the opportunity to hear about Charlotte and Danae’s first hand experience and ask any questions before applying.
