Lucy Joseph is the Live and Local Strategic Initiative Program Manager at the Live Music Office.
The Live Music Office (LMO) works to increase opportunities for live music in Australia by identifying and advocating for better policy, regulation and strategy.
Established in 2013 by the Federal Government in partnership with the Ministry for the Arts, the Australia Council for the Arts and APRA AMCOS, the LMO goals are to support the growth of the venue-based live music sector in Australia in order to increase live music performance opportunities and to support live music audience and sector development.
The LMO works to achieve these goals through providing information, advice, and research, strategic planning support, better regulation advocacy and industry development programs. We deliver projects such as the Live and Local Strategic Initiative, Amplify and the Live Music Map to build long term capacity and connectivity for Local Government and the live music sector across metropolitan and regional communities.
