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?
