Lullaby Project Australia is committed to developing and building a diverse network of Lullaby Project artists across Australia. In 2020 the first introductory training day was launched, open to professional musicians with an interest in creative music leadership and community collaboration. This initial program was led by local and international leaders in the field and explored the background, scope and impact of the Lullaby Project worldwide. Participants came together to develop key tools, share experiences, and build vital knowledge for working as creative music leaders within community settings. Invited attendees will be mentored to work as Lullaby Artists within future projects.
In response to the overwhelmingly positive feedback, Connecting the Dots in Music is developing a second stage of this initiative that will see a more extensive Artist Training Program established in 2021.
