AusMusic T-Shirt Day
On Drive we get to hear Clive Miller from Support Act (a unique Australian charity that aims to aid the music industry) talk about the upcoming AusMusic T-Shirt Day event, coming up this Friday November 15th, which will help raise funds for artists, crew and music workers who experience financial hardship, due to ill health, injury, or mental health issues.
Research indicates that people in the music industry, suffer from anxiety and depression. That’s 5 to 10 times higher rates than people in the rest of society.
Support Act offers a wellbeing helpline, which is a free 24/7 phone counselling service for people working in music in Australia. That is 1800 959 500.
To join in on the nation-wide celebration of Australian music you can go to https://www.ausmusictshirtday.org.au to create a team or direct donate, and wear your favourite Ausmusic T-shirt this month and share to social media
