The Coronavirus COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on the music industry and kiwi music people.

Tours have been cancelled, international showcases years in the planning called off, with virtually no notice.

Venues have already closed with no sign of bookings for the future.

Music events have been indefinitely postponed and abandoned entirely.

At the heart of this are kiwi music people who rely on this activity completely for their livelihood. They and their dependents are facing levels of distress and hardship never seen before.

We urgently need your support to provide hope, advice and practical support to the music people most affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

We need funds for counselling practitioners to help those affected to navigate the extreme emotional and psychological impact of this crisis.

We need funds to be able to provide emergency financial assistance to music people experiencing extreme hardship.

We need resources we to provide targeted emergency support for the environment and infrastructure that makes music possible in our country.

Will you help us keep the music alive?

Supporting our Covid-19 relief efforts into 2021  21 December 2020

Posted by: MusicHelps

As 2020 draws to a close, we reflect on what has been an extraordinary year in so many ways for our kiwi music workers.

While there is much to celebrate with our Covid-19 status and our ability to gather and enjoy kiwi artists in local venues and at summer festivals, at MusicHelps demand for our counselling and emergency support services continues at far higher levels than in previous years.

The continued absence of international tours, on which many kiwi music workers rely, is still having a massive knock-on effect on the livelihoods of many people over the holidays. Local activity is still not sufficient to bring us back to pre-Covid levels.

We are very excited about the efforts of our supporters to help us make a difference to this vital part of our community. We are very humbled to hear of fundraising efforts that people are planning well into March of the New Year.

That is why have decided to reopen and extend our emergency Covid-19 relief page and redouble our efforts to make a real difference to the wellbeing of kiwi music workers whose lives have been turned upside down by the pandemic.

We can't do this vital work without the support of you in the community. We thank you for all of your support this year and look forward to bringing you more news of our work with kiwi music people in 2021.

Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi.
