In the Music Real E84, we speak with Cr Vicki Howard, Councilor for Central Ward which incorporates the Brisbane CBD, the Valley and inner-city suburbs. Vicki is Chair of Community, Arts and Nighttime Economy Committee. Lord Mayor Adrian Scrinner formed the committee to address the impact that the COVID lockdowns would have on Brisbane’s vibrant night time economy. The Brisbane City Council has been highly responsive in its support of local businesses and especially those in the Events, Hospitality and Music sectors. Vicki talks about the plan and vision for the outcome of this committee. We talk about the great BCC initiative for young emerging music artists The QUBE EFFECT and Vicki announces the winner of the 2020 award KATANAK – huge congratulations to them as well as to Brisbane City Council for creating more opportunities for your artists to be seen and heard. Brisbane is just starting to re emerge and it was wonderful to hear about so many activities happening across the city thanks to the support of the Brisbane City Council. Big thanks to Vicki in her guidance to Live Music Artists who perhaps cannot go out and perform to their full capacity just yet.
