You're an artist. You care about our living planet and you want to do more to ensure your music-making is as green as possible. This guide is for you.
There are lots of reasons to go green. Shit’s getting real. That's not news to anyone. Everything we love is at risk. The very conditions for life on earth are threatened.
At a deeper level, this crisis represents a fault between our modern society and the living planet. The truth is, we are nature. So what we do to Mother Earth, we do to ourselves. It’s time we honoured that truth and returned home to more harmonious ways of being.
As our summers heat up, as fires and floods get worse and our living planet buckles under the strain of the modern world, it's natural for us to want to step up. We know that a planetary environmental crisis can't be solved with individual efforts - it needs coordinated, collective action. Right now, many people are asking ‘What can I do?’. And as musicians, we can do more than most because we can lead and inspire broader social change.
Musicians have a platform and a voice, so we’ve got a role to play in both doing what’s right and in speaking up about it. With power comes responsibility, as they say. We want to help you use your cultural power well.
That’s what Sound Country is about: for thousands of generations, the music of this continent was connected to Country, in spirit and action. We’re here to support musicians to reconnect, realign and reinspire that ancient and still-breathing purpose.
