MUSIC CREATIVES INVITED TO EXPLORE NEW REVENUE STREAMS THROUGH FREE CREATIVE LAB HAWAI‘I VIRTUAL PROGRAM

Maximizing monetary opportunities for Hawai‘i’s music-making community, a new Creative Lab Hawai‘i (CLH) virtual program, spearheaded by the State Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism’s (DBEDT) Creative Industries Division (CID), is now open to the public for registration.

Get Paid for Your Music: Navigating New Revenue Streams will explore the often untapped aspects of the music business that can unleash dynamic revenue opportunities for local talent, and provide a deeper understanding of royalties, production libraries, and licensing music for use in film and TV. The free four-part program will be held via Zoom, with webinar dates in November and December of 2020. The virtual programs are a pathway to the CLH Music Immersive program, which has opened up new markets for Hawai‘i singer-songwriters and collectively generated over $500,000 in music licensing revenues for these gig workers since the program’s inception.
